NEW BUSINESS PROCESSContact: Peter Mikelson, Vice Chair 505-248-8232 www.abqscore.org email@example.com Ever Secretly Thought about Starting a Business? To be successful, you need a great business idea. Otherwise you join the herd of businesses scrapping in a very competitive marketplace. But where can you find those ideas? The answer is through a creative approach to detecting customer problems and finding solutions for those problems. In the past, entrepreneurs who thought they had such a problem solution jumped into the planning process by preparing a business plan, arranging for funding and opening their businesses. This resulted in a very large failure rate – up to 80% by the end of five years, depending on the business sector. The current, more effective process is called “Lean Entrepreneurship” which mandates testing that problem solution in the marketplace and refining the idea, or “pivoting”, until the solution exactly matches customer needs. Then and only then do you start planning for the critical function of implementing a business plan to provide the tested product/service to customers. This approach results in a much higher probability of business success by assuring the existence of buying customers. When: Saturday, Oct 3, 9:00 a.m. – Noon Where: UNM West, 2600 College Blvd. NE, Rio Rancho, NM 87144 How much: $19.95 Go To http://bit.ly/SCOREworkshop_Oct03 to Register.
