New Venture Creation

A Framework for Entrepreneurial Start-Ups

by Paul Burns

New Venture Creation framework exercises


The New Venture Creation exercises at the end of each chapter are reproduced in these files. They can be downloaded individually, chapter by chapter, or in their entirety as a zip file.

Once you have downloaded the exercises, you can input your answers and calculations by following the on-screen instructions. You can then print off the exercises as you require. As you get feedback on the exercises, you can amend and update them.

The exercises build into a business plan. You can use the pro forma available on the website for this. Simply copy and paste your final answers and calculations into the appropriate part of your plan (see Exercise 16.1) and then edit to produce a plan appropriate for your needs.
