VT KnowledgeWorks presents Startup Readiness Workshop, a workshop that helps entrepreneurs test the strategic essence of their business concept, tighten up on managerial focus, and review the overall business start-up process. This workshop is held at convenient locations around the state.

Who should attend…anyone considering the launch of a business.

  • Inventors with exciting technological developments
  • University faculty members with revolutionary research results
  • Web developers with fresh business concepts
  • Career shifters thinking about starting a company

When you should attend…very early in the planning process.

  • When your business concepts are still forming
  • Before you incorporate, write a business plan, or launch a web site
  • Before you spend any significant time or personal money

What you will study…key issues and concepts related to planning and launching a new business.

  • Considerations for the business founder: personal expectations, roles and responsibilities, managing pace, and maintaining focus
  • Capturing the strategic essence of the new business
  • The countdown sequence for a successful launch: 5 Powerful Habits, 4 Fundamental Factors, 3 Vital Capabilities, 2 Components of MOXIE, and 1 Effective Leader
  • Connecting with the business community: the language of business, accounting de-mystified, financial modeling, preparing for investment
  • The definition of success and the importance of full commitment

What it costs…much less than a failed launch.  Includes snacks or lunch.

  • Workshops at Virginia Tech:  Free for Virginia Tech students, staff, and faculty
