If you’ve been waiting for a new Coquitlam-Port Coquitlam cycling connection, you may have to wait a little longer.

Other items falling behind schedule include, a road map for major recreation and cultural facilities, a master plan for Blue Mountain Park, and the next phase of planning for Glen Park.

Writing a business plan is an important step for an entrepreneur who wants to launch a company of any size. If you dream of opening a business in the U.S. or Canada, a solid business plan can help you secure funding and prepare for the future.

Is Your Strategic Annual Plan A Bust? Revive It With These Three Strategies

Primbondh/ November 28, 2022/ business plan

I serve as the visionary at EOS Worldwide with a passion for helping entrepreneurs get what they want from their businesses.

Strategic annual planning remains a tried-and-true event at many companies. During these meetings, leaders put their heads together and trace out a direction for the coming year. Sounds easy, right? Not really: Many studies have found that 60% to 90% of strategic plans never get off the ground.

Strategic plans aren’t magical documents. Yet, many leaders use these meetings to create wish lists of what they would like to see, do or accomplish in one year.

Pigment raises another $65M to build the modern business planning platform

French startup Pigment has raised a new round of funding less than a year after raising a $73 million Series B round. If you’re not familiar with Pigment, the company develops a business planning and forecasting platform.

For small companies that are growing, it can replace Microsoft Excel, as it’s more secure and more solid in general. For bigger companies that already use a business planning product from Oracle or SAP, Pigment can replace these legacy platforms with something a bit more modern.

The company calls this new $65 million round a Series B+ because it’s more or less in the same ballpark as its Series B. While Pigment isn’t disclosing the valuation of the startup, it is going up following today’s deal.

So why did Pigment raise again so quickly? Because there was an opportunity and because the current economic environment doesn’t look great. IVP and Meritech Capital are
