The Just Add One Program assists eligible small business owners create strategies to strengthen their business model/operations and make them more efficient, with the goal of helping each participating business grow and contribute to the economic growth in the region.
Entrepreneurs in the start-up phase of business development will receive resources and support from business experts on the do’s and don’ts of a start-up organization from exploring ways to build a sales organization, building customer loyalty to monitoring the company’s budget vs. actuals as a guide for making strategic decisions. G2E will also explore new opportunities to offer customized programs including offerings to immigrant entrepreneurs and older adults among other groups, depending on the demand. This program may include workshops and forums on strategic planning, access to capital and budgeting, marketing and promotion and financial management.
This program’s goal is to take a business idea and create a plan to successfully launch a new business. Participants in this program will explore the feasibility of their business idea; hone their value proposition, research and define their market and industry, research their competitors, research key financial requirements, cost out products and services, cost out their marketing plan and prepare to launch.
