Commercialization Task Plan

To the best of your ability, please describe the tasks/activities you feel you need to complete over the next 24 months in support of your commercialization effort.  As illustrated in these downloadable PDF notes, we are interested in the following:

  • Development tasks necessary to deliver a commercially marketable product or service, the month to month;
  • Operational activities  necessary for the delivery of your product or service;
  • Marketing and sales activities  you will need to reach a financially sustainable level of operation; and
  • Staffing requirements you will need to complete these tasks.

Month by Month Cash Flow Requirements for the Completion of Your Task Plan

Your ability to create a financially successful commercial venture will depend a great deal on your ability to project the cash flow needs necessary to complete the tasks in your commercialization strategy.  Without detailed estimates of the size and timing of your needs, the creation of a financially sustainable venture will be almost impossible.
