Refining Your Business Idea

Thursday, June 28 | 12:00 PM - 1:00 PM

ATB Entrepreneur Centre, Grande Prairie

Having a business idea is exciting, but getting a business off the ground is challenging. Sometimes its best to dig deeper into your idea to make sure as you move forward you are on the right path by asking these questions;

  • Do you have a great business idea but have difficulty articulating it to people?
  • Could you describe what your business idea is in a few minutes?
  • Do you know what it is you are selling?
  • Do you know the problems you care solving for your customer? Do you wonder if your business idea is strong enough to take the leap?

Get a bit clearer on your business idea so you can be confident in taking your next steps..
