“Please accept my thanks and appreciation for such an excellent product. It was very good when I started using it years ago, and it has improved from there. I am an adjunct instructor at Chemeketa Community College (Small Business Development Center) in Salem, Oregon. I have used several business plan applications and like BizPlanBuilder the best. I recommend it to clients when appropriate.”
~ Gary Richards, Business Brokerage, M&A, Salem, OR

“I have used BizPlanBuilder and it has an incredible amount of information, templates, spreadsheets, sample content, and tools in it. It is a very robust system (way more robust and flexible than LivePlan, if you ask me)! Burke has decades of experience with business financing and business planning software. I have also used Burke as a guest speaker to talk about pitch development and pitching angel investors, etc., as part of the ScaleUp program. Burke is a great resource for us to have available to us! ”

now you have a proven tool enabling your clients to go back to the bank with a proper loan package.

“While I was with the Wharton Small Business Development Center, I wrote 70 or 80 business plans over a 4-5 year period using your Biz Plan Builder (all of our clients bought copies). Most business owners knew how to make products, but didn’t know how to really run a business. Mainly, we introduced them to budgeting, got them to profitability sooner and enabled them to be more effective and efficient in their business practices. Also, we did lots of ‘what if’ to help them to expand their marketing areas… and that was all with the older version of BizPlanBuilder! This new version is quite a bit more powerful. The new financials give you a lot more flexibility—a lot of nice stuff in there!”
~ William Parsons, Philadelphia, PA

“I have used both Business Plan Pro and Biz Plan Builder in my past management positions. With all the so-called sample plans in Business Plan Pro, it’s easy to think you have the final product. You really don’t—it’s not really that user-friendly especially if you are not comfortable writing the narrative. Instead, with Business Power Tools’ BizPlanBuilder, it’s much easier for me to help a client develop a professional business plan that I don’t have to entirely rewrite.”
~ Sajata Strong, Area Director, Clark Atlanta University SBDC, School of Business Administration, Atlanta, GA
