Strategic Planning for Startups Made Simple

February 2 @ 9:30 am - 11:30 am

Entrepreneurs are told over and over that they need to have a “plan” for their business, but given little guidance in how to construct one. As a result, they waste countless hours writing and revising business plans that no one will ever read, rather than creating, developing and executing on a well-articulated strategic plan that can serve as a roadmap to success.

In this program, we’ll cover:

  • Why most companies fail at strategic planning
  • Steps to dramatically enhance your strategic plan
  • What areas you shouldn’t waste time on when developing your strategy
  • How to effectively integrate strategic planning into your startup’s management routine

Speaker: Stephen Davis is a business growth strategist – as well as the Founder of The CXO Advisory Group, a firm providing interim COO and VP Sales and Marketing services.  He works with businesses, entrepreneurs and service providers who want to accelerate revenue growth to the next level and seize the most attractive growth opportunities. Steve has been a mentor and advisor to entrepreneurs over 25 years helping them improve business development, gain sales traction and has coached them on how to build profitable, scalable and efficient businesses in preparation for venture financing.

Doors will open for networking at 9:30am.

This program is part of McCarter & English’s ongoing series on legal and business topics for entrepreneurs and emerging companies. Programs are held once or twice each month and are open to members of the CIC and their guests, as well as to the greater Boston entrepreneurial community.
