When should I create a Business Plan?

Start as early as possible. Your final plan might be quite different from the first draft—your business plan will change and grow as you learn. Make sure you’ve researched and planned for all the important factors of starting a business, so you aren’t caught off guard later.

If you aren’t ready to create a business plan just yet, join us at an upcoming Business Model Canvas workshop and learn how to utilize the lean startup template for developing a one-page business plan to use as a starting point. Visit our events page to find out when and where the next workshop will be.

We want to acknowledge that in the province of Alberta we are situated on the traditional territories of Treaties 4, 6, 7, 8 and 10, ancestral homeland of diverse First Nations groups, Métis and Indigenous people whose ancestors have walked this land since time immemorial and whose histories, languages and cultures continue to influence our vibrant community. We pay respects to the Indigenous people of this land, past, present and future, while recognizing their cultural heritage, beliefs, and relationship to the land on which we reside.
