Take a Peek Into Team 1712's 2016 Business Plan
Always have trouble writing a business plan for your team? Take a look at Team 1712's awesome example!
Three Takeaways for new teams on Team 1712's Business Plan example:
1. Make a compelling statement to tell your story!
When Dawgma was founded, it established “Four Legs”, which would act as pillars of the educational philosophy. The legs are to be achieved in succession throughout the duration of a season. The Four Legs were first defined as follows:
Passion: Transforming curiosity into excitement
Perseverance: Design is an iterative process; Culture change takes time
Community: Strengthening team awareness and fostering connections
Leadership: Developing socially responsible leaders for the 21st century
2. Introduce your outreach programs, which allows people to understand how they can help!
Team 1712 includes 5 categories and 6 programs in their business plan. They made effort to carefully plan the outreach in the whole year, which includes community outreach, social media branding, mentor acquisition, sponsor engagement, and communication strategy.
Because individual students are responsible for communication with specific sponsors, a personal, individualized relationship is created between each sponsor and a Dawgma Sponsorship Team student.
3. Including Human Resources and Financials into your Business Plan
To summarize, Team 1712 succeeded in their business plan for three reasons:
1. They made a compelling statement to tell the team story.
2. They introduced the outreach program in details.
3. They included human resources and financials into the plan.
