Want to launch a business but aren't sure how to write that all-important business plan?

In this Lunch and Learn, business mentor Nauzar Manekshaw explains all you need to know about business planning. Nauzar is a licensed practitioner of the Business Model Canvas and an expert in testing business ideas methodologies.

The length of traditional business plans can be intimidating. You may also lack the information to complete the plan if you haven't started trading yet. A business model canvas allows you to create a business plan on a single page. The structure examines whether a business idea is viable.
