There’s no doubt that many successful businesses start with brilliant ideas, but if you can’t translate your idea into a business plan, you will have difficulty finding lenders or partners.  Even if you don’t plan to solicit outside funding, the process of creating a business plan is an excellent exercise to consolidate your ideas into a practical and executable form.

This course focuses on how to prepare the financial side of the business plan using the following capital budgeting techniques: Discounted Payback Period (DPBP), Net Present Value (NPV), and Internal Rate of Return (IRR).
