After all you want to create entertainment not worry about dollars and cents. Well it is entertainment and it is business as well. So set some time aside for Saturday, 1/14/12 and take a walk on the business sideyou will be glad you did! Come and learn from Doug Zogby, President of Zogby Entertainment and seasoned business consultant.
What is a Business Plan and why do I need one?
More than ever investors in independent film and entertainment come from all walks of life. There was a time when investing in entertainment was more about seeing one's name listed in the credits as opposed to actually realizing a return on the investment. Seeing one's name in lights is simply not enough anymore. Investors want to analyze their potential return and the only way to do that is to give them the details in a format they understanda Business Plan.
OK, so this should be a 1 or 2 page document right? Not! A solid business plan will be 30 to 45 pages in length. It covers the story, the budget, and the potential revenue streams and expected ROI.
By attending this informative seminar you will be exposed to variety of topics and ideas, such as:
Should you have a Business Plan or Securities Disclosure Document, or both?
The elements of a sound business plan
The Film Company and choosing the best structure
The Securities Disclosure Document
