BizPlan.com helps entrepreneurs create and share business plans on-line.The Problem
Over 6 million new businesses are started each month in th U.S. alone, and all of them have the same challenge: turning their business idea into an actionable plan.
While many resources exist to learn about business planning, very few useful resources exist to actually write an effective plan.
Once those plans are written, getting them distributed in front of the people who need them - investors, partners and co-founders - is an even bigger challenge as documents tend to change constantly and protecting this sensitive information is crucial.The Solution
