Description:

A tailored one on one program to support the development of entrepreneurial companies - helping you to navigate through the business issues relevant to the stage and needs of your business.

 

Purpose:

The Lighthouse Business Foundations Program supports you with your business development, whether your goal is to attract investment, find a first customer or manage change in your organisation.  You will work with a Lighthouse Commercialisation Manager to establish a set of priorities and milestones to help achieve consistent progress in your business.

At the end of the program you will have developed a set of benchmarks and goals to work towards and have the skills to achieve them.

 

How it works:

We don't want to run your business, so we focus on skills transfer and capability building to give you the best opportunity to achieve sustainability and success.  You get an individualised work-plan with specific activities related to your business goals and we provide an opportunity to meet subject matter experts if required.  The issues covered include:

·      Are you in the right head space and clear on your long term goals?

·      Reviewing your business in terms of business model, corporate and financial structure and risk management.

·      Is your product viable?  What are you selling and who to?

·      What is you Unique Value proposition for you customer?

·      Are you charging the right price?

·      How will you fund the business when cash is tight?

·      Options for growing your business using internal or third party funding.
