Business Feasibility Study

What is a Business Feasibility study?

A feasibility study can help you decide if your idea can be turned into a successful business. You will figure out how much money you will need to start the business, research companies who provide the same product/service, and determine who your target customer would be. The feasibility study will help you decide if you want to start the business, and if you want to apply for one of Momentum’s longer business programs.
