This page provides access to the documents and materials used in the teaching of Business Planning: Financing the Start-Up Business and Venture Capital Financing.  Access to these materials requires a password provided to faculty that have adopted the Maynard & Warren casebook (and accompanying Teacher’s Manual) available now through Aspen Publishers. 

These materials are in addition to those provided in the Maynard & Warren Business Planning casebook and Teacher’s Manual.  Available for download are Word versions of a syllabus template and the lecture notes as well as supplemental teaching materials, and forms of the graded writing assignments, including the assignment memoranda and the documents to be reviewed or to be used as precedent in the drafting exercise, with several variations.  We believe these writing assignment materials are a fundamental element of the “integrated learning” teaching innovations that makes our approach to Business Planning unique. 

In addition, for the graded Memo Assignments we offer sample graded responses and grading rubric forms.  Additional supplemental materials also are provided for your consideration, and in development is a bulletin board for faculty to exchange ideas, comments and to discuss questions.    

If you have your password, please click on any of the following links to go directly to the Syllabus, Lecture Notes, or Graded Writing Assignments pages.  Once you have entered your user name and password, you may navigate freely between the Faculty-Only pages.

If you do not have a password and should, please email us at with your contact information and situation.  We will respond as quickly as possible.
