Refined & updated since 1988
Backstory: Some friends at Apple loaned me their Mac and I started the company in 1988 with “MacBizPlan” — in my down-jacket out in my garage typing away… (Later, I had a version made for the evil empire and the rest is history.) Since then, we’ve been listening to customers and investors, as well as using our own business plan software to raise capital and lines of credit. 30 years! (OMG!) Making tools to help you get your idea into the world. More later, but for now, please keep reading…
BizPlanBuilder’s business plan templates have been refined longer than any other — That’s why the BizPlanBuilder version for the Mac is so widely accepted (and often referred) as the best business planning solution by so many banks, consultants, other entrepreneurs, the SBA, angel investors, and venture capitalists worldwide. It’s the fastest and easiest way of turning your ideas into a winning plan and a successful business.
How these proven templates make it fast and easy for you to to write your business plan
The templates-only version of BizPlanBuilder is a collection of Word, Excel & PowerPoint templates that contain the very same content as the PC application. Unlike the Windows-based program with its document assembly system, we have taken the individual business planning pages, assembled and formatted them for you directly into complete Word-based business plans and Excel-based financial projection models for you — beautifully formatted documents that you can easily customize, edit and format to your liking using Word & Excel.
The best of hundred of plans built in!
Over the years, we’ve taken the best of hundreds of business planning components and incorporated them into a few great prototype documents you can use to easily write your business plan. If your business is even slightly different from vanilla, you’ll find that this method is far more robust than deconstructing and rebuilding a limited so-called industry-specific cookie-cutter business plan template. (Read the Reviews.) We’ve already done the work for you, plus we have been working with entrepreneurs, consultants and investors for 30 years.

You can’t afford to take chances — go with the one business plan for Macintosh solution proven more than any other to produce an investor-grade business plan. Investors are asking more questions than ever and they want to be absolutely sure that everything is properly aligned before they’ll write you a check.
Some investors claim they want to see a 30-page plan (max), but before they’ll write you a check, they’ll ask enough questions to fill out another 30 pages! How you look an investor or banker in the eye with a thorough knowledge of your business will make all the difference in the world.

Professional looking financial projections
Whether you’re writing a formal business plan for investors or developing a meaningful forecast for your business, BizPlanBuilder incorporates a full set of business financial models. They are completely configured, fully integrated and tastefully formatted using Excel® workbooks. (They work the same as in the Windows-based system). Click them open, then click along the tabs at the bottom to access each page… You’ll see, they’re very comprehensive, straight-forward and credible.
There’s no need to be a spreadsheet or financial expert. We created “Assumptions” pages to make it easy for you to enter, update and experiment with your business model. All formulas have been developed and independently tested by qualified and practicing business consultants who hold valid CPA certifications.
BizPlanBuilder’s financial models are straight-forward and show all of the math — Just enter your sales, expense, growth and other assumptions, and let BizPlanBuilder run the calculations. You can easily see “what-if” when you change scenarios. Easily produce investment-grade financial statements ready for angels, venture capitalists and any bank. We also integrated the following worksheets so you can engineer the best financing deal for your business:
- Sensitivity Analysis (We invented a unique 1-page “best/worse” case comparison worksheet)
- Business Valuation (3 common models + the average of all 3)
- Capitalization Table (Helps you plan stock allocation)
- Investor “deal” analysis (How much will investors make; How much will you make?)
The “Use of Proceeds Summary” table suggests levels of investment required over 9/12/18/24 month periods — enabling you to prioritize your cash requirements to reach certain valuation milestones desired by most sophisticated investors. (When you understand this, you will realize why your deal will work and others won’t!)
No Application Included – Edit with Word and Excel!
Although the Windows “wizard” is not there, we have already assembled the documents for you — for easy editing and formatting in Word. We hope to have a cross-platform product out within the next 6 months that is collaborative for all of our users. We will honor our 6-month free upgrade to you at the time that product becomes available…
