To help set your small business or entrepreneurial venture up for success, the City of Vaughan’s Business Planning Launchpad Series continues in October!


Delivered by the Vaughan Business and Entrepreneurship Centre, the Business Planning Launchpad Series is a free virtual program designed to support startups and established small businesses with training sessions. In addition, all participants can book 30-minute one-on-one meetings with one of the City’s entrepreneur advisors to receive feedback on their business and financial plans. 


Each session covers one of four training topics: 

  • Ideation – Learn how to validate a business idea, vision, mission and market research to test business assumptions.

  • Marketing – Learn about target markets, unique selling points and marketing basics and must-dos to build a solid marketing plan to generate leads.

  • Operations and Sales – Learn about customizing effective sales approaches and processes and operational and risk management.

  • Financial – Learn about finances, budgeting and cash flow management, and how to finalize a business plan.
