OVERVIEW: The purpose of this first component of the Signature Assignment is for the student
to develop an idea for a business that they would consider pursuing as an entrepreneur. When
developing the business idea, each student should first consider giving thought to the type of
product(s) or service(s) their business will sell/provide as well as the way in which technology
will be incorporated into the business, its product(s) and service(s).
A healthy understanding of
the product(s) or service(s) for the proposed business can serve to help the student think more
intentionally about the business as a whole.
Prepare 1½ – 2 page single spaced business proposal containing responses to the following
prompts. Provide detailed and meaningful information and refrain from vague generalities.
Number your responses appropriately based on the following required elements:
1. Identify the name of your proposed business.
2. Discuss the primary function(s) of the proposed business (e.g., service and repair, wholesale
or retail, build or manufacture, serve or feed, help or promote, etc.).
3. Identify three goals for the business or develop a mission or vision statement.
4. Describe the business location. Areas to consider as part of this discussion are:
• city and state where the business will be headquartered
• the online presence to be used when selling the product(s) or service(s)
• pop-up shop locations and frequencies
• third-party retailers through which you anticipate selling the product(s) or service(s)
5. Discuss the product(s) or service(s) to be offered/sold by the proposed business? Provide
meaningful details regarding the following:
• features and benefits
• technological aspect of the business and the product(s) or service(s)
• packaging
• target audience (ideal buyer or user)
6. Identify competing businesses and provide details of competitive products or services
currently on the market.
7. Identify the strengths of the competition and the threats posed.

8. Discuss how you intend to differentiate your product(s) or service(s) from those of the
competition. In doing so, consider your approach to:
• establishing a pricing structure
• packaging and design
• product placement
• unique branding opportunities
• service skills, processes, and benefits
• customer acquisition
9. Describe components of the specific marketing strategy you will use to promote the business
and its product(s) or service(s). Consider whether you might use any of the following in this
• free product(s) or service(s) to create a buzz
• social media contest
• blog post
• live demonstrations
• flyers
• low introductory pricing
• person-to-person selling
• Facebook ads
• customer reviews
• a different marketing strategy
10. Assume you need to raise $50,000 to get the business started and operating. Discuss how
you will raise or secure the funding using no less than three different funding sources. (NOTE:
Family members and friends count as one funding source.) Potential funding sources to
consider include:
• your own personal finances
• money borrowed from relatives or friends
• crowd source funding

Small Business Administration (SBA) loan
• bank or financial institution loan
• a different funding source
When discussing this part of the paper, don’t just make up random information. Use the internet
as a research tool to seek grants designed for small businesses and entrepreneurs. Visit the
Small Business Administration’s website for the state to learn about small business loan
qualification requirements. Speak to a trusted family member and ask how much they might be
willing to lend you to start a new business venture. Provide meaningful information such as
interest rates for loans, payback terms and timeframes. If you plan to use crowd sourcing,
discuss the details of how you will structure the request for donations. Get creative and be
descriptive when discussing how to realistically raise the $50,000 start-up capital, but do not be

11. Discuss how the $50,000 start-up funds will specifically be used. Identify reasonable first
year expenses needed to start and operate the business (e.g., business license, equipment,
materials, salaries, marketing, etc.).
12. Calculate and discuss a reasonable cost for the product(s) or service(s) and discuss your
pricing strategy for resale purposes. Next, discuss the expected profit margin (NOTE:
Mathematically you would calculate this as (selling price – cost) / cost. For example, if you
develop a product for a cost of $10 and sell it for $15, the markup would be calculated as:
($15 – $10) / $10
$5 / $10
.5 (convert the decimal number to a percentage to get a 50% markup
13. Identify your role within the business and the number of employees needed for the proposed
business to function effectively? (NOTE: The proposed business must use no less than three
employees.) Discuss the specific positions and areas of responsibility the employees will hold
and fulfill.
14. Discuss additional information you think is important to help you succeed in launching the
proposed business venture.
Think of logos that successful companies use. Examples of logos for some of the most
successful organizations in the world are:
To stimulate your critical thinking, give thought about possible reasons why successful
companies choose their logos and how the logos represent the business model, mission,
products, or goals of the organization. Examples of such include:
The Toyota logo was designed to represent every alphabetic letter in the
company’s name.

Frequently asked questions

How soon can I get my paper done?

It depends with your deadline. If you need your paper completed in 3 hours, we will deliver it in that time. All you need to do is indicate your deadline in our custom order page here. Alternatively, if you are sending us your instructions via email, please be sure to indicate your deadline.

Will it be completely original? I don't want to be caught in a case of Academic Integrity Violation.

We are as paranoid as you are. Maybe even more! And we understand that the greatest sin you can commit in your academic journey is plagiarizing your academic work. To that end, we have made sure that we check and double-check our papers using high quality plagiarism detection tools such as SafeAssign and Turnitin before submitting the paper to you.

Who is my writer? Is he/she a native English Speaker?

All our writers are native English Speakers. That is not to say that ESL writers are not good, we just prefer hiring native writers because we want the very best people working on your paper. This might mean paying a little bit more for your paper as opposed to when you pay a foreign company whose writers are non-native English Speakers.

What if I need revisions? Will your charge additional for this?

Of course not! If you do happen to require a revision on your paper, our team will handle it for you free of charge. Matter of fact, we won’t rest till you are happy with your paper. So, ask for as many revisions as you need, it’s completely FREE!

Will you give me my money back if I don't like my paper?

We have very few instances where we delivered a paper that a client didn’t fall in love with. But if it so happens that you don’t like your paper for any reason whatsoever, we’ll refund your money back no questions asked.

I have more assignments after this, can you help me with those too?

Of course! And what’s even better is that we can reserve a writer permanently to work on your entire class. This comes in handy for projects which build up on each other and where you need just one writer, one writing style.

I got my order information wrong, can I change that?

Yes you can. Just reach out to our support team via email ( or live chat here and they’ll help you change the instructions.

Can I place an order via email instead of going through the order page?

Yes you can. Email Anna at, she’s in charge of our sales team. Alternatively, you can talk to our Live Chat team here and request to speak to Anna.
