LivePlan guides you through a step–by–step process for writing any type of business plan.
Wondering how to start your plan? Feeling frustrated by the financials? Don't worry, we've got you covered.
LivePlan makes writing any type of business plan ridiculously easy. The app asks you questions about your business, you just fill in the answers. And along the way, you get loads of examples and sample plans that you can use as inspiration or copy word–for–word (really, we don't mind).
A LivePlan business plan is designed to be flexible, so you can easily update it as your situation changes.
Getting a new source of revenue? Plan on buying more equipment or hiring a developer? Adjust for these important changes by tweaking your plan on the fly — even if you're not at your desk. Just sign into LivePlan (it's mobile responsive) on your smartphone or tablet and tweak away!
You can also track your progress against your plan and monitor important milestones. We'll get to those in a moment.
