Project Details

What We Need
  • A document with detailed feedback and edits that ensures an Organization's business plan clearly defines its mission and approach, finance and operating structure, and tracks to key performance indicators.
Additional Details

Maverick Landing Community Services (MLCS) operates a makerspace for kids and teens. This summer we built the teen makerspace and production lab and will have a production crew working on laser cut customer gifts and a design crew working on STEAM kits for the kids in the community. We are working on a business plan and would like to work with someone to help us further develop and finalize it.

What We Have In Place
  • We currently have a rough draft, a break even formula and some research, which should make it easy for you to get started. We also have the executive director and her assistant on this project, and the ability to provide any other information you need.
How This Will Help
This project will save us $3,808 , allowing us to reinvest this money into the programs and the business

This business will help to make our kids and teen makerspace or more sustainable with revenue from the business paying for youth wages and program costs.

Children (7-12): after-school and summer program offering academic support, socioemotional development, and STEM engagement.
Teen Programs (13-18): a workforce development and social enterprise program that helps teens build 21st century skills to advance their educational and economic goals.
Adult Programs: English Innovations, a tech-infused language learning model; the Work, Tech and Life Skills program helps adults with digital job search, setting up a LinkedIn profile and digitizing resumes and portfolios through EastieCoders- a front end website development study group.
