Business Plan Resources and Tools
There are many excellent resources for developing a business plan including:
- Write a plan from scratch (the open your computer and go method!)
- Download business plan templates and/or sample plans
- Buy business planning software
- Hire a writer or consultant
Each method has its pros and cons. However the end result is generally (and hopefully) the same – a completed business plan and financial model that will help you start a venture and raise capital.
As a leading business plan consulting services firm, we would welcome the opportunity to help you write a plan that will impress lenders and wow investors. However, we recognize that there are many entrepreneurs who would prefer to go through the planning process on their own.
For that reason, we are committed to providing you high-quality free (and low cost) business plan templates, sample plans, articles, and other do-it-yourself resources. If you're searching for business planning tips, tools and advice from experts who have prepared hundreds of plans - you've come to the right place.
Everything in our resources section is here to you write a business plan that gets results and propels your company forward. Please check back regularly, as we continue to grow our library of resources.
