Educators Love LivePlan

Students really take to the hands-on application of LivePlan. Because LivePlan and the “Start, Run & Grow Your Business” curriculum are straightforward and easily grasped by students of all skill levels, students can focus on researching their own business concepts and fully develop their own business plans. Before using LivePlan, students sometimes were intimidated by the business planning process. LivePlan breaks it down into manageable steps and takes the mystery out of developing a business plan.

Prior to using LivePlan, I provided students with a Word document template for their business plan. Even though I encouraged students to use a collaboration tool such as Google Groups, many did not. They were emailing the plan back and forth between each other and it was difficult to keep track of versions and changes. LivePlan really facilitated communication between students who were in a team on the business plan project. Students could comment on sections of their business plan and collaborate on what to change in their plan without having to meet face-to-face.
