The toolkit is freely-accessible to any individual with an internet connection, and all of the resources (including templates and downloads) are provided at no cost to you or your members. These resources enable individuals to improve their knowledge of all aspects of starting and managing a business, including creating an effective business plan, accounting, financial management, human resources, import and export, legal and insurance issues, marketing, sales, operations, and information technology.
