  3. 3. 2. A business plan that is provided to potential investors, lenders, and partners when trying to raise money and form partnerships. If you are putting the business plan together for yourself only, then use our free guide 10 Steps To A Great Business Plan.

  10. 10. Why we picked LivePlan? ● Low cost and moneyback guarantee. ● Over 500 sample business plans to view. ● Easy to create a great looking, professional business plan in a relatively short period of time.
  11. 11. What Do We Suggest? After creating your business plan you take it to your local Small Business Development Center (SBDC) for feedback. SBDCs are non-profit organizations with the goal of stimulating (growing) local small businesses. You can find a local SBDC location here.
  12. 12. Who We Did Not Rate? Palo Alto Software offline options. We chose to only rate their online business plan product, because the online product offers built-in collaboration features that enable multiple people to work on the plan from any computer. Using the same thinking, we did not rate the offline products from Jian Software.
  13. 13. We included Master Plans as a way of benchmarking the cost of creating your own business plan versus paying a company to create one. These companies will charge you anywhere from $900 to $4,000 to create a customized business plan. We believe that this is way too much money for the service that they actually provide.
