Good news for entrepreneurs & inventors who think they need lots of money to start!
In this 90-minute presentation, Burke Franklin will step you through a number of ideas to help you build your business without raising capital.
And if/when you want to raise capital, whether it's through angels, banks, crowd-funders, or venture capital investors, you'll be in a far better position.
He's worked with entrepreneurs, consultants and investors over the past 25 years and there are certain things that you must do.
Burke invented business planning software more than 25 years ago with his popular BizPlanBuilder® --
with that he founded the software company, Jian (jee’on, www.jian.com) - now offering a suite of successful business productivity software tools.
Burke was elected to the White House Conference on Small Business, nominated for Ernst & Young’s “Entrepreneur of the Year.”
Burke’s highly praised book, Business Black Belt draws parallels from the martial arts and is rich in hard-won advice for building and running a business today.
“I first found Burke and JIAN almost 10 years ago – and have been a RAVING FAN ever since.
I trust his knowledge, skill and more importantly – his Wisdom – he is after all – a JIAN…
Seriously, we’ve used many of JIAN’s products and found them accurate, up-to-date and incredibly useful.
I strongly endorse both Burke and JIAN.”
