So with this input, a business plan & with the help of local venture capital firm she started coaching institute. Turner test Prep Co. helps students to prepare for CPA exam which gives competitive advantage, even though the institute in doing well but only able to capture 10% of the market share. Primary Problem No prior Market research- she was not focussed on being an entrepreneur, thus she had no knowledge about the market and she did not go for market research also which lacked the basic advantages to be more competitive than her competitors. Secondary Problem Even though 3 years have been completed, the institute is not able to achieve its breakeven point Small market share SWOT Analysis of organization Strength excellent performance Weakness Higher fees Structure High operational cost Opportunity Huge market Threat High competition Substitute methodology
