Business Plan: The deliverable is a comprehensive business plan. The student may choose to develop a [entrepreneurial] comprehensive proposal for a new company or a proposal for a new product line or business venture [intrapraneurial/innovative] within an existing organization. The business, new or existing, must be identified by a name. Engle (2020) notes that thousands of business plans reach potential investors each year. Most are discarded. The few investors accept typically include a strong team or management structure (presence of strong leadership), well-defined market opportunities, discussion of key risks with a strategy to mitigate them, and conservative financial projects that include ranges.
