This preview shows page 12 - 14 out of 14 pages.

NOTE: As discussed in the B-Plan checklist, mini-plans do not contain a full set of pro forma statements, however, you must consider the basic financial techniques and metrics shown in the text – direct cash flow projections for launch period (first 6-12months is fine for the purposes of this course), start-up cost estimates, break-even and profitability ratios, and discussion of risks/unknowns (Text Chapter 9, 10 and Slides). You will submit the slides for Presentation I. Once submitted, the slides will be posted for the viewing of your classmates. It is also helpful for your classmates’ constructive assessment assignment. Submission Details Presentation Slides Presentation slides should be extremely clean and streamlined: For maximum readability, use a background/theme that contrasts well with all text and pictures… Use only clear, hi-impact photos and illustrations Shoot for font size >=32 whenever possible. Try to limit text five lines per slide – or five headings. File Type: Microsoft PowerPoint Submit on Canvas by the deadline indicated on your course schedule. Presentations as originally submitted will be loaded on classroom computer – no changes will be allowed post-submission. One submission per team. Grading Criteria (10 points) At this point, there needs to be evidence of honest, hard work on your concept – even if you have faced some roadblocks/challenges along the way.

13 Upon completion of Part III, each student in the class will be required to provide constructive feedback to two teams based on their in-class presentation . Each constructive feedback should offer the presenting team detailed advice that they can use when revising both their plans and pitch for their upcoming Presentation II. You will be notified which teams for which you’ll be writing the feedback prior to the presentation days. These teams will receive an anonymous version of your feedback, and they also will rate the quality of your feedback. Thus, your grades for this assignment will be partly determined by these peer ratings. Submission Details Students must use the Constructive Feedback surveys provided on Canvas. Insert in-line citations in your responses where necessary, and submit your feedback by the deadline indicated on your course schedule. Grading Criteria (10 points) Submissions that follow instructions, and provide the most relevant, in-depth, actionable and carefully constructed advice will be awarded the highest grades. See Examples of Constructive Feedback on Canvas Part V, VI: Presentation II, Final Mini B-Plan including Revisions & Proof of Concept As this course wraps up, your team should be focused on really proving your concept works. This is best accomplished by profitably selling as many units of your product/service as possible, tracking your actual cash flows and comparing them to your initial budgets/forecasts, gathering detailed feedback from multiple sources, considering opportunities for growth, and refining your plans accordingly.
