Chris Hintz of Venture Capital Intermediary investment banker prefers BizPlanBuilder business plan software

“We recommend to all of our clients that they produce their business plan using professional business planning software, such as BizPlanBuilder from JIAN. BizPlanBuilder is cost effective – and those who have used it have raised more than $1billion in venture capital. In our experience, it is the preferred format for VC’s and we know the software well, as JIAN is a client of ours. The software is intuitive, simple enough for a 10 year old to master and, in our considered opinion, the best on the market today.”
– Christopher S. Hintz, Chief Executive Officer, VC Intermediary LLC

“Your product is the best in the business. We would not be here without it.”
Randolph Howard, Howard Consulting Group, Chicago, IL

“Gives me all the formats and financial, but isn’t a canned plan it allows flexibility. Thanks.”
Jon Loveless, Strategic Business Solution, Dousman, WI

“The BizPlanBuilder, text format and prompts, provide a comprehensive, disciplined approach to preparing your business plan!”
Peter Gregg, HHW Consultancy, Halifax, NS


“I own a full service Advertising Agency in NH. I use several of the JIAN products on a regular basis. We use Employee Manual Maker and Employee File Builder for HR, Agreement Builder to build many of our agreements with long-term clients, customers, and vendors, Marking Builder to build the templates to many of our marketing, advertising, and public relations plans, and BizPlanBuilder to build our business plan and corporate structure. You don’t have to be new to business to use these plans. I’ve been in business for nearly 25 years, and I find these programs every bit as useful now as I did when I was learning as a new business owner. I maintain my upgrades because there is always new and better information supplied in the programs. These guys know EXACTLY what they are doing, and how to do it.
I had one situation where BizPlanBuilder came in unbelievably useful. I was hired by a small record label in Tampa, FL to put together a business and marketing plan for them to use to raise $350,000 in capital for their company. I was also hired to make the presentations to potential investors. Using both BizPlan Builder and Marketing Builder, I created the needed presentation. My first appointment was with seven Tampa Bay Buccaneers interested in investing. After making my 35 minute presentation, I was unable to raise the $350,000 the record label wanted to raise. These seven men wrote checks totaling $575,000! Super Bowl thanks to JIAN for creating such a fantastic software package. I use several of their products regularly in my business. I wouldn’t even try to expand my business without them.”
James J. Albion, President, ZMJ Enterprises, Marketing & Advertising Agency, Dover, NH www.zmjenterprises.com

“Starting a new business venture can be a lot of fun. It can also be awfully scary—especially when you realize how much you don’t know. After all, did anyone ever teach you how to do things like write a business plan that will really grab the attention of potential investors? Sure, you’ve got a great idea, but unless you know how to communicate that idea effectively it could be pretty difficult to get someone to believe in you enough so that they’ll be willing to lend a hand. That’s where a great program like BizPlanBuilder really shines. Quite simply, it’s the best way that I know to create a business plan that will get you the investors that you need to be successful.”
Brian Underdahl, Author, Small Business Computing for Dummies

“BizPlanBuilder is the best business plan software on the market. We have used other packages, and when we found BizPlanBuilder, we decided it is the one we want our clients to use. In our business, we do a lot of SBA loans, all across the country. It’s important for the bankers to see the personality of the business and the people involved in the ventures we are seeking funding for. Financials alone are not enough. All the aspects of a business need to be covered in the business plan, if a company is going to be considered for funding. BizPlanBuilder helps a business owner do that – it covers all the bases, and helps generate the thinking required to produce a complete picture of the proposed venture.”
Bill Dorgan, William Dorgan & Associates, Business Finance Consultants, Tucson, AZ

“Awesome job… everyone compliments on our plan. This software makes our plans the most comprehensive plans we’ve seen to date and I’ve been writing plans for over 15 years. Nothing compares to it. I’ve written plans on my own, used other software, BizPlanBuilder is superior in every way. The comprehensive financials section impresses everyone. They always ask…”you did this yourself?”… I always respond, “No, I used BizPlanBuilder.” Thanks for such a great product.”
Michael Gilbert, CEO, Street Level Consultants, Plano, TX

“As an experienced financial consultant, I was amazed at the depth of the package and its ease of use.”
Tom Devine, The Clayton Group, Inc., New York, NY

Lion Goodman

I HIGHLY recommend Burke’s software. It’s helped me start two entrepreneurial ventures, and I’ve recommended it to dozens of my clients. His business planning software helps you think through all the issues that could – and do – come up when you’re growing a business. It’s like getting 20 years of good business advice for about $100.”
– Lion Goodman,The Goodman Group, San Rafael, CA

In my practice, I have many business owners as clients. I have examined many of the business planning software packages and have purchased, what I thought to be the better ones, just so I would know “what is out there.” BizPlanBuilder is the best I have seen.”
Gerald Gaggini, Attorney, BELL, FLECHAS & GAGGINI P.A., Jackson, MS
