BizPlan is a better way for entrepreneurs to write a business plan
Columbus, OH (Vocus) July 7, 2010
Go BIG Network, the biggest online network connecting investors to entrepreneurs and small businesses, introduces BizPlan.com, the leading online business planning solution. Bizplan.com enables entrepreneurs and business owners to quickly easily create a quality business plan to be used in the fundraising process.
“BizPlan is a better way for entrepreneurs to write a business plan,” said Will Stubbs, Director of Customer Service. “The tool allows you to pick a business plan template from an online plan library, edit your plan to address your personal needs, and print your business plan or share it online. You can invite team members to your plan so they can help write the plan with you. And then when you’ve completed your plan, you can use the share feature to get feedback on your plan from board members or investors. The process is simple, and entrepreneurs can quickly begin addressing their fundraising needs using Go BIG Network and the BizPlan.”
The tool outlines the major aspects all good business plans should contain. Within each area, BizPlan gives examples and tips to keep the plan on track and help produce the plan that’s right for specific funding needs. The financial section can be the most challenging, and prevent many startups from achieving their plan goals. However, BizPlan offers templates to get entrepreneurs through this part, and even offers professional guidance to help finish the financial section, if needed.
BizPlan recognizes the importance of collaboration and allows the user to easily share their business plan with friends or colleagues. Various permission levels allow the user to give access to coworkers or friends, and enable them to leave comments or take part in the creation of the business plan.
“Go BIG Network understands entrepreneurs are always on the move, especially when starting a business,” Stubbs said. “BizPlan allows the user to access their plan 24/7 no matter where they are. Plus, the plan can be e-mailed, exported or printed any time, using any platform.”
When entrepreneurs send their plan off to investors, it is important to know if the plan is even viewed. BizPlan tracks whether a plan is looked at or not and when it is shared it with investors or friends. It also allows the user to tell which areas of their business plan investors were interested in.
“BizPlan helps entrepreneurs create a professional business plan that is easily shared with investors and leaders,” Stubb said. “We connect startups with 20,000 plus early-stage investors, so they are maximizing their funding potential using GO BIG Network.”
