About Us

'Business planning made simple.'

A revolutionary business planning service for early stage entrepreneurs. BizSkills Academy was created to solve business planning and pitching challenges facing early stage entrepreneurs and small scale companies seeking to grow their businesses.

The learning experience is achieved through a process which merges user friendly financial planning software with coaching and training principles. The approach is to give the entrepreneur not only the fundamental tools to support business success but empower them with essential business planning concepts at the very start of their business.

BizSkills believes in empowering the individual
It is estimated that between 70 – 90% of start-ups globally will not survive the start-up phase or live past a five-year period. What is often cited as a leading cause is a lack of sound business planning, specifically in the financial aspect of the business. Then a couple of issues like timing, team execution, business idea and business model are also highlighted, whose source is also associated to lack of quality planning. If a business plan can’t be implemented, then the business can’t thrive. This is where BizSkills Academy comes in, putting you in control with a simple hands-on approach to business planning.

With BizSkills’ easy to use system, business owners can keep updated on the financial information affecting their businesses, any minute of the day. They can create their business plan to a standard ready to be viewed by investors and have access to reports relating to sales and cashflow forecasts in a clear graphic format. In addition to this, they have access to guided learning from experienced trainers and mentors, as they learn different aspects of business planning. All within the comfort of their own home or work.

The goal of the BizSkills process is for all entrepreneurs who fulfil the requirements of the program to be able to understand and use the information in the context of their businesses and locations. In so doing, put them in a stronger position to meet the challenges that they might face during the process of setting up and running their businesses.
