Webinar: Developing a Lean Business Plan as an AgriTech Entrepreneur

Event Details

  • Date:

Join us for two 4 hour sessions on developing a lean business plan and aligning this with your mission, vision and values.

These sessions are ERDF funded. Due to this they are only open to UK registered AgriTech/Agrifood companies. You will be sent some forms to sign before taking part in the webinar.

With markets evolving fast and customer expectations constantly changing, it is important for businesses to learn to fail fast to get the right result. These sessions will look into why business models and lean business plans are required.

During the first session on the 25th June (9am-1pm) we will explore your customer segments, what value you are adding to them, and how to test the market fit. We will utilise tools such as the Customer Value Proposition and the Business Model Canvas.

The second session on the 26th June (9am-1pm) will see us focus on developing a lean business plan as well as developing strategies in relation to your mission, vision and values. We will also be joined by Phil Mitchell, director at Harbour Key Ltd, who will give us an insight into finance fundamentals.

Although each session is 4 hours, there will be plenty of breaks and interactive sessions. The group size will be small to ensure we can give each of you the bespoke support you require, so please do only sign up if you will definitely attend.

You will also be offered a follow-up session to look into other useful materials such as one-page business plans and pitch decks.

Any questions please email Sarah at Farm491: sarah.carr@rau.ac.uk.

Feedback from our most recent session:

“I would like to thank you for the amazing webinar. All the knowledge, feedback, and exercises have been extremely useful to identify my weakest points and from there, to generate new priorities and strategy to take the company forward. It was a really enjoyable experience, which will definitely help me to feel more in control and confident to approach challenges that start-ups face.”
