Incubators and Accelerators love LivePlan

We think of LivePlan as a portal for validated hypotheses, and a way for our companies to gather their thoughts and really focus on writing an execution plan. LivePlan is not about writing the great work of fiction, but rather about how the entrepreneur will build a sustainable company. It's also a great tool for sharing with early employees and other stakeholders the history and vision of the company, and how they're working in the industry. We find that this helps with execution and proper decision making. There is never a finished plan but always a work in progress.

As an accelerator director, I was always looking for products and services that I could incorporate into my program that would make the life of a founder a little less hectic. Creating a business plan and pitch deck with LivePlan met that need. It was perfect in terms of usability and quality. The platform is very simple to navigate, collaborative, and customizable to fit any business type, while allowing the user to get granular on projections. The end product has a very organized and professional feel that my founders and investors were very happy with. Definitely an added value to the tool kit an accelerator or incubator would want to provide to their members.

LivePlan provided an easy way for participants in our community college incubator program to think about and model a new business idea or extension to their existing business. For many, this was their first time doing a strategic business plan and all appreciated how straight forward the process was. Beyond the plan, the process opened up a new way of thinking about their company, even for those who had been in business for years.
