LivePlan makes it easy to write a convincing business plan.

You get a step-by-step process to follow.

LivePlan asks you questions about your business, you plug in the answers. It's as easy as that. You'll get straight-forward instructions with examples on:

  • Writing a pitch that grabs investors' attention
  • What to include in your marketing plan
  • Every essential piece of your business plan

All the financials are calculated for you.

LivePlan tells you exactly what kind of financial information you need to enter and then it does all the calculations automatically using built-in formulas. So you end up with razor-accurate financial statements that include all the tables that a lender or investor expects to see.

“I'm not one to just say ‘Here's a large hole and I'm just going to dump a bunch of money into it,’ I think the foremost component of it was, ‘Is this going to work? Can this work?’”
