How does this work?

This Step 
The Strategy Explorer Tool focuses on how you will compete against others in the big, cut-throat business world. It tests that your business model will continue to make money over time. The Tool walks through the broader opportunity and industry before looking at how you will get the most value out of your business idea. 

The Tool will take approximately 15-20 mins to complete.

Why It Is Important 
The Explorer Tool sharpens your thinking about how to position your business based on what is happening today, what might happen in the future and what your competitors are doing so that you continue to make money over time. A common reaction to starting a new business is to offer low prices. This might get you new customers in the short-term, but it can make it difficult to keep them and stay profitable in the long-term. 

How It Works 
The Tool summarises the most important strategy tools that you would learn in an MBA into a series of easy-to-understand questions. The summary provided at the end will give you the basis of the background section of a great business plan.
