Get Inspired

As you are starting a new business, make sure you take a moment to understand what you think it means to be a business owner and why you want to start, to help make sure you are heading in the right direction.

Idea Canvas

As you are looking to start a new business, it often starts with a single sentence. The Idea Canvas helps take it from this to develop the idea into what it means for customers, and initial thoughts about how you will make it real too.

Business Purpose Canvas

As you prepare to market your business, you need to focus on sharing the value that your business creates. This canvas helps you to look beyond the monetary value to focus on the impact you will make in a range of areas.

Implementation Plan

To help you achieve your goals, you need to know what it will take to make it happen (including the people, equipment and money) as well as the difference it will make once you reach them.

One Page Business Plan

As you build out your business idea, it is important to think about who your customers could be, how you will make money and what could hold you back – and to help you document everything, here is a quick one page business plan template to write a couple of sentences under each heading to start.

Target Customers

To help you understand your customer groups, we’ve got a simple table to help you understand the demographic, geographic and behavioural factors of your customers as well as what customers will say about your business.

Marketing Canvas

A marketing strategy can be lengthy document, however as we are action-orientated at The Van Diemen Project, we have developed this helpful canvas to pull together the key elements of your initial marketing campaign to help you think about how you will get the word out.

Pitch Planner

Concisely presenting your business or idea to audiences can be challenging, but it is a necessary skill that you will need to get right. Take some time to map out and plan your pitch so you can deliver it when you are next at an event.

First Five Customers

As you are starting your business, it is important to think about who your first customers could be to build traction. This table helps you note down who your first five customers could be, how you will approach them and then reflections on how that process went so you can go after your next five.
