We are thrilled to share the exciting news of the successful completion of our 7-week program, Business Plan: Snap & Boost, designated to assist entrepreneurs in crafting effective business plans. It’s with immense pride that we announce the graduation of 12 dedicated and passionate individuals who have successfully completed this transformative journey.  

Over the past seven weeks, our participants embarked on a comprehensive and intensive program that focused on developing their business ideas into concrete, actionable plans. Through expert guidance and interactive workshops, they honed their entrepreneurial skills and gained valuable insights into the world of business strategy. 

During the first 6-weeks, participants engaged in hands-on workshops that covered vital aspects of business planning, including market research, financial projections, marketing strategies, and operational planning. During the 7th week, the program culminated in a pitch event where each participant presented their refined 30-second elevator pitch to their peers. This experience enhanced their pitching skills and boosted their confidence in showcasing their ventures.  

We are immensely proud of the hard work, determination, and creativity demonstrated by our graduates. Each of them has shown exceptional commitment to turning their dreams into reality, and we have full confidence in their ability to make a significant impact in the entrepreneurial landscape.
