Upgrade your business strategy and success plan with the newest version of BizPlanBuilder

bizplan builder bizplanbulder business plan software template

The original retail box!

30+ years refinement and funding success make this version of BizPlanBuilder the best ever!

Our experts and I have been regularly attending investor meetings and listening to what angel and venture capital investors, as well as SBA-backed lenders, want from entrepreneurs and business owners today. They haven’t changed much, but they want better substantiation of your plans.

We’ve done a tremendous amount of development work since you’ve last seen BizPlanBuilder. Not only have we upgraded all of the text, we have dramatically improved the financial model spreadsheets with more calculators and a bunch of graphs.

We also read a tremendous number of journals, receive a wide variety of e-zines, and constantly access many web sites and blogs looking for ways to make BizPlanBuilder better for you. Also, customers constantly contact us with questions, ideas and success stories. And, we’ve learned a lot ourselves from running a successful and profitable business over the past 30 years!

“Wow! This is a huge difference compared to the version I bought back in the mid 90s. Nice work.”
~ Mark Gascon, health-mart.com

Is it worth upgrading BizPlanBuilder?

It’s probably not if you have just written your business plan—just edit that and keep going. However, to take advantage of the new content, financial models as well as the multi-user, collaborative features, purchasing this upgrade to write a new business plan is well worth it.

If you have any older version of BizPlanBuilder (or any other business plan software), and you want to write the best plan possible for today’s market, then, yes, it would be worth it to upgrade BizPlanBuilder.

“I have been a long time customer of [JIAN] Business Power Tools using BizPlanBuilder and Marketing Builder to start several companies including one public company, with three more in the works.

“We used your Biz Plan Builder and obtained a $450,000 SBA loan in 5 days. This was after we had been told by a number of “experts” (legal & financial) that it would take at least 90 days to get an approval and the most we could hope for would be $50,000 to $150,000. We were a raw start-up with absolutely no assets. The only thing we had going for us was our experience in the same business and your business plan. Thanks for your part.”
