final project please create 9 to12 slides W r i t i n g
This is where the whole course comes together. With the completion of BOTH your company’s Business Brief (see: Textbook, Chapter 10, Pages: 237-240) and your company’s 12 Slide Pitch Deck (See: Textbook, Supplement B).
BUSINESS BRIEF (Chapter 10) – 50 points
The Business Brief (BB) is made up of eight (8) sections. Include the following sections in your BB: Company Overview, Value Proposition, Market, Customer, Actions Taken, Our Team, Financial Projections, and Future Milestones. Go back and review your submissions for Assignments 3, 5, 6, 7, 8, 9, 12/13, and 15 to help generate your BB’s content. However, DO NOT JUST CUT AND PASTE the whole Assignment into your BB, select relevant content. Your business brief should have headers, be written in paragraphs format, some bullet point acceptable and should go into detail about your business. It should be present in a formal business format, approx 2-3 pages and be essentially error free. Do your best to run a grammar and spell check before submitting your BB. Imagine you are preparing the brief to present to potential investors. Go into detail, when necessary, so to convince investors that you have thoroughly investigated and prepared your business for launch.
PITCH DECK (Appendix B) – 100 points
The Pitch Deck (PD) is a visual PowerPoint presentation that describes in detail the nature of the business, the need or problem it solves, industry characteristics, the customer, the market size, the business model, profit potential, team and call to action. Go back and review your submissions for Assignments 3, 5, 6, 7, 8, 9, 12/13, and 15 to help generate your PD’s content. Use the information to guide the creation of each slide. There are no strict rules for pitch deck length or style but for this final project please create 9 to12 slides to answer these fundamental questions: What is the problem/need? How will you solve the problem or meet the need in a unique way? Who is the customer and are there enough customers to build a viable venture? What is the size/extent of the market for this product/service idea now and in the future? How will you reach, acquire and keep customers? Who will you compete with and how are you different? What is the business’ expense model? What capability’s does your team have to execute the venture? What is your call to action?
