Business Planning

LivePlan was built from the ground up with simplicity in mind. At each step, there are example business plans, video help, and tutorials to help you avoid writer’s block. The step-by-step planning method makes it easy to create a professional plan that will wow any audience. With built in financials, LivePlan does all the math for you.

Your knowledge about your business, combined with LivePlan's powerful forecasting tools will create a bulletproof business plan.

After 15+ years in the business planning business, we know what lenders are looking for in a business plan. When you use LivePlan, your plan will meet those standards.


The Pitch makes it easy to share a quick one-page overview of your business with lenders, investors, and your team - keeping everyone on the same page, without having to share a full business plan document. Easily add your business overview, team members, and milestones, and turn them into a unique infographic with the click of a button.


Budgets and sales forecasts are a critical element to business success. Our new Scoreboard feature brings those budgets to life.

Scoreboard is your new secret weapon for growing your business. It simplifies your day-to-day financials, and let’s you see your overall performance compared to your plan, all in real time. It’s the easiest way to build an intelligent budget and forecast.

If you use QuickBooks or Xero, you can even automatically sync your accounting data with your plan for instant access to your key business numbers.
