CORE FOUR® Business Planning Course

Developed in 1998 by the Northeast Entrepreneur Fund, the CORE FOUR® Business Planning Course is a culmination of years of experience training individuals in starting and growing their own small businesses. E-magnify has been presenting CORE FOUR® since 2008.

The course focuses on the following four core bodies of knowledge that a business owner must have in order to operate a successful business:

  • Marketing plan preparation;
  • Business plan preparation;
  • Cash flow projections; and
  • Business operating procedures.

By helping participants develop an understanding of the four core bodies of knowledge presented in the course, CORE FOUR® presents participants with the tools and knowledge needed to build a business plan. The knowledge gained allows participants to begin the process of gathering information needed to plan their business. Once participants have obtained the knowledge about how to plan a business, they can use it for any business idea, at any time, for the rest of their lives.

CORE FOUR® is suitable for those who want to start a business, as well as those who desire to operate a business more effectively. The course contains 18 hours of training, and is available in two formats: six, three-hour classes or two full-day sessions.
