Thanks to LivePlan's Lean Planning framework, this Accelerator-style course accommodates students from any industry, at any stage of business, with any level of experience—all in the same classroom!Read more »
From a very lean, pitch-style plan to a formal, lender-ready business plan, LivePlan will ensure your founders have the right tools to understand all the critical aspects of their venture and express their ideas in a clear, consistent format.
LivePlan's financial forecasting tools ensure participants of all backgrounds can easily create a financial model that supports their vision and validates their idea.
Each founder's LivePlan account can be shared with team members, mentors, and staff, allowing companies to share their vision and progress with their mentors and other stakeholders.
LivePlan uses a step–by–step approach that includes instructions and examples. Founders can focus on one thing at a time, without distractions. And all founders and collaborators can use our free phone, chat, and email support for any software questions they have.
LivePlan empowers founders to focus on business strategy, financial forecasting, and activities that will drive their business forward, rather than getting hung up on Excel and Word documents, so your programs deliver the maximum value possible.
LivePlan business plans are impressive, complete, and require that founders think through each component of their plan and forecast. Founders are prepared for success, and can easily export a pitch deck presentation from LivePlan or share a one–page executive summary—all in a format that has won hundreds of business plan competitions, and received countless millions in total capital infusion from investors and lenders.

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.
OSU Advantage Accelerator & RAIN
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.

Southern West Virginia Community and Technical College
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.
