Pitch to Anyone, Anywhere

Start by outlining your ideas & testing your assumptions

Every successful business starts with the right foundation. And with the LivePlan Pitch Builder, you get an easy way to outline the essentials. This includes helping you:

  • Figure out who your customers really are
  • Clarify what problem your business is solving
  • Set smart goals & milestones so you can grow faster

The entire process typically takes just 60 minutes – you can even write it on your smartphone. And once finished, you'll get a better idea of how to position your business for success.

Get a one–page pitch that's built to impress

Crisp graphics and a slick design help make your one–page pitch stand out. Plus it's easy to show off: share a link to your pitch for quick feedback or export it to PowerPoint for presentation–ready slides.

Write your plan in bite-sized chunks with AI assistance

There’s no escaping it: banks and investors want to see a complete, detailed business plan that includes strong financial forecasts.

LivePlan guides you through the entire business–planning process with:

  • Simple step-by-step instructions
  • Automatically generated content with AI
  • Detailed examples for every section of the plan
  • 550+ sample plans you can copy and paste from

Create financials without tricky calculations

No spreadsheets. No calculators. No math whatsoever.

Just answer a few questions about your sales and revenue and LivePlan will handle the calculations automatically using built-in formulas. That means you get ultra-accurate cash flow projections with a minimal amount of effort.

Plus the AI LivePlan Assistant gives you suggestions for revenue streams, expense types, and other forecast categories that are specific to your business.

Get a polished, fundable plan that’s easy to share

Your business plan will be optimized to earn you funding

Our plans are approved by the Small Business Administration, which means they give lenders and investors all the information they need to see.

But it's not just about them. You can also customize your plan to match your business by selecting from 10 different document themes.

Once complete, download your plan as a PDF or Word doc. Or you can print it to get a professional document

Then track your actuals against your plan to grow 30% faster

The LivePlan Dashboard is a dashboard that makes it easy to compare the financial projections in your plan to your actuals. That way, you can make adjustments on–the–fly to optimize your business.

The Dashboard connects to Xero or QuickBooks, so there's no manual data entry.
