5-Finger MBA Program

Course Description:
The 5-Finger MBA (Micro Business Accelerator) is a visual, practical method of creating your business plan. When you’re done with this business plan, you won’t be stuffing it in a drawer or forgetting what you wrote. You’ll hang it up on the wall for constant reference. So, clear your mind of what you thought a business plan is.

In the 5-Finger MBA (formerly Launch Pad), you’ll spend four Saturdays from 9am to 1pm answering a series of questions in an environment to help you concentrate. If you’ve procrastinated or dreaded the thought of writing a business plan, this process is ideal for you! For one thing: there’s very little writing. The four hours are broken into four segments, each geared to stimulate your creativity, improve your answers and organize the five most important areas that create successful businesses. Your final product will be visual and easier to execute into reality.

You must have a serious business concept developed or have recently launched a new business. Graduation from an entrepreneurship program, business school or experience in the field of your business is helpful. You must have a passion for what you do.
