Resources For Entrepreneurs
Free resources developed by The Skillery for aspiring entrepreneurs, including worksheets, downloads and tips about starting a business.
Resources to take charge. For no charge.
We believe in sharing what we've learned, and sharing what we've built. That's why we've put a number of our favorite resources available online, for free.
We built a 74-page workbook, and stocked it full of thoughts, activities and exercises aimed at helping you take your idea out of your head, and put it on paper. It's a great first step for anyone with a business idea brewing.
We've created a very simple financial spreadsheet for our hypothetical business — opening a coffee cart — and it's available as a free download. Use it to learn financial basics, or adapt the template to build your own financial spreadsheets for your business.
The Business Model Canvas
Tools designed to help entrepreneurs identify and test assumptions are plentiful nowadays. Our favorite is one of the most simple: It’s called the Business Model Canvas, and it involves a piece of paper and some sticky notes.
One of our favorite exercises — one that typically causes lightbulb moments for entrepreneurs — is a writing exercise that asks us to envision our customer’s journey to, and with, our product or service.
the starter kit
The workbook, business model canvas and more are included in our Starter Kit, which collects everything you'll need to get started. It's the perfect way to get started taking your business idea out of your head.
And we'll ship it to you for free.
