Business Plan 2013-2014

Updated April 2014

Team 781 created its first ever business plan during the 2012-2013 season (Ultimate Ascent) and we were honoured to be the recipients of the Entrepreneurship Award at both the Waterloo and Buckeye Regional Competitions! We also distribute this document to donors and industry professionals by request, and have received positive feedback from all of our audiences. The document has been updated for the 2013-2014 season (Aerial Assist), and includes even more information than before!




Most of these resources were created specifically for Team 781 to help organize our team and our events. However, they are easily adaptable to suit any FIRST team's needs.


"Project management isn’t complicated, it’s just a template of things to think through ahead of time. Planning things in advance and then working through the plan will make your team successful."
