I worked with many entrepreneurs who felt like planning would slow them down and restrict choices. After I shared LivePlan, they realized the opposite was true: data, charts and living plans allow you to make better informed choices that deliver growth.

LivePlan's unique Dashboard feature gives entrepreneurs a one-stop dashboard that tells them exactly how their business is doing and how to grow.
If I could dream up a business plan creation system, this would be it! This is exactly how I want to create a business plan.

LivePlan is incredibly simple and easy to use. The financial sales forecasting tool is very intuitive and makes writing a business plan more fun. I would highly recommend this product to anybody starting a business or revising their business plan.
The encouragements I have received through the LivePlan newsletter and website have been very useful for the development of my business plan for my concierge business in Lagos, Nigeria. LivePlan is indeed a great guide to writing a good business plan.

I needed to write a business plan for my investors. I was going nuts trying to create charts and properly format them. Then a friend recommended LivePlan! The financials were so easy to use and I liked knowing the calculations were all correct. It helped me create a precise plan to confidently share with investors, and I've raised $3M so far!

I researched business plan templates online to help me write my business plan, and they were not unique enough for my business idea. I was so pleased when I discovered LivePlan. It's helped me think through my business strategy, and take a sophisticated approach to writing the core components of my business plan - especially my financials. I appreciate the structure, flexibility and built-in financial calculations that LivePlan provided.
LivePlan is awesome. I love what you guys are doing. You actually helped my startup win a national business plan competition! I've created a business plan by scratch on my own before and I was able to GREATLY reduce the time it took me to complete it using LivePlan.
I've checked out no fewer than 10 other options. This is by far the most simple, the most user friendly, and the most feature-rich option out there. It's not only the cleanest and best-working (no bugs!), but it actually gives you the tools you need to cover a wide variety of business planning needs. Given the range of functionality (for example, you can do month-by-month sales forecasting for 36 months at the basic price level - something that most other services charge you an arm and a leg to upgrade tiers to gain access to), no other software comes close to this. And the final output of the business plan is SO CLEAN. A nice variety of example plans are available, and the "guided" element of going step-by-step is really actually helpful (instead of prohibitive, as I've found some guided software just takes you too far away from what you should really be focusing your time on).

I was really stuck on a business model I had created for a renewable energy company. I decided to take a chance on LivePlan and was not dissappointed. I raised $1.3 million for my client in private capital as a result. On my second plan I was able to secure capital improvements for a client from their landlord in the amount of $250k. While the capital is important, it will be the implementation of the plan(s) that yields the most benefit for the client.

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.

LivePlan was user friendly, supportive and provided meaningful guidance all while remaining very flexible. With LivePlan, I was able to build a logical and cohesive business plan that accurately reflected the unique nature of my business. Thank you very much!
LivePlan set me off on the right trajectory at the earliest, most critical stages of conceptualizing and launching my business. It helped me think through my business holistically - prompting me to develop plans for vital areas I might have otherwise shied away from. The experience of using LivePlan was actually inspirational, as it kept me laser-focused on my company's potential. I had so much fun creating the future, it was hard to walk away from my plan! With my initial plan complete, I now have a "compass" to constantly refer back to to keep me on track for growth and remind me of great ideas I intend to pursue. LivePlan also helps me monitor what I've accomplished - and that's always motivating.

Most people are intimidated by the financials, but LivePlan made planning simple, saved me so much time and just knowing that the calculations are correct makes this tool worth every penny!
Noelle Notals, LLC
LivePlan was so great that I don't have one recommendation for improvement! I really liked how it forced me to think through key parts of my business, like my competition, market research, and calculating my margins. We've only been in business for 6 months, and we've already exceeded our sales projections by about 100%. I attribute a lot of it to the way the business plan was organized. It helped shape the marketing message, and the consistency in which it has been delivered.

You guys rock. My accountant was amazed that I was able to put such a plan together. He noted other clients with bigger bank accounts that had a much less appealing and straight forward plans. Thanks guys.
LivePlan helped focus me. I was able to document my goals and milestones, and it helped me realize how many clients I need in order to hit my revenue goals. I don't really enjoy writing, so the sample plans included in LivePlan nudged me along and really helped me write a solid plan.
