I have recently started a small business. I would like for my ventures to grow, with some assistance. How do I move forward?
The starting point for any venture is some form of a plan. I am not talking about a telephone-directory thick business plan, nor a plan developed for you by someone else in order to try and raise funding, but rather a tight, concise plan that lays out your core business, your potential customers, your product or service focus and the primary actions you need to do in the short-term to get the concept off the ground.
There are many good templates for a simple strategic plan available online, such as the Business Model Canvas. You should also look at what business development programmes, if any, there are out there that may be able to offer some support.
Finally, you should approach SEDA and see what support they could possibly provide.
