Help Even More Low and Moderate Income Clients Write Business Plans With our Proven Methodology...

If you are a 501(c)3 nonprofit, government agency or post-secondary educational institution providing training and/or technical assistance to low and moderate income (LMI) individuals, your organization can now be licensed to use One Page Business Plan books and products! With licensure, you can quickly and easily add these useful, revenue generating, and nationally known programs to your menu of services.

How Your Organization Can Use The One Page Business Plan...
When licensed, your agency can use the well known One Page Business Plan trademarks and logo when marketing programs and services to entrepreneurs. Once trained, your agency can:

  • Use the books/methodology in one-on-one consulting with clients
• Design and facilitate multi-week training programs
• Develop peer group support and feedback programs
• Conduct One Page Business Plan for Entrepreneurs workshops 

Becoming Licensed is Simple...
Participating agencies will sign a program agreement and pay an enrollment fee. Secondly, agencies will be required to use One Page Business Plan books and products when utilizing the methodology. Additionally, the company requires consultants, program managers, and trainers of the agencies, (whether volunteer or paid staff) complete a four hour training program (two, two-hour training sessions) before working with the methodology. These training sessions are held by teleconference so no travel costs are incurred. A list of training dates appears at the top of this page.

Small Investment...
The program pricing is designed to encourage all of the consultants and trainers of a particular agency to attend the train the trainer program and become qualified to use the methodology. Organizations that have small program budgets of less than $500,000, may qualify to participate at a reduced rate.

What Others say...
"In the six years we have conducted the program we have found The One Page Business Plan process and book the best resource for teaching business planning efforts. Entrepreneurs and Consultants equally share their ease in following the instructions, telling us about their 'ah ha' moments in completing the exercises and especially value the workbook format minimizing the time it takes to apply the learning. We highly recommend The One Page Business Plan process and books.”
Catherine Marsh, Mentoring Chairperson
Phoenix Chapter President

The more I use The One Page Business Plan book the more valuable I realize it is. I would recommend using this invaluable tool for all businesses whether just starting out as I was or going through growth and in need of refocusing.”
