ApproachAMP for Startups has all the cost and quality advantages of Eagle Strategy Group’s AMP program, but is designed to help entrepreneurs get their business off the ground. AMP for Startup projects fall into two project areas: Business Plan and Operations Strategy.
For a Business Plan project an ESG consultant acts as a “Mentor” guiding the entrepreneur through business plan creation. The Mentor begins by interviewing the entrepreneur to understand the venture. The Mentor then works with the entrepreneur to create an outline for the business plan and begin the writing process. If the entrepreneur has already started a plan then the Mentor conducts an assessment of the Business Plan identifying areas that need to be improved and then works with the entrepreneur to re-write the plan. As the entrepreneur works through the Business Plan the Mentor is available by phone or email to guide the entrepreneur through the process, provide feedback, or as a sounding block for ideas.
For an Operations Strategy project the Coach guides the entrepreneur through starting up the operations. There are many steps in starting up operations; here are a few examples of areas where an ESG Coach can help:
AMP for Startups is a flexible approach that can be utilized at any step in the business startup process. For example an entrepreneur creates a management team for a new venture. The team includes members with backgrounds in finance, marketing, and sales. The Mentor trains the team on how to create a business plan as well as additional tasks that need to be completed to launch the business. As the team hits road blocks the Mentor is available to guide the team through the issue. After launch the team continues to use their training to continually update the venture’s strategy and business plan keeping the company organized and all members of the team on the same page.
