Discovering innovations that matter since 2002

Business plan 2.0

Work & Lifestyle

While budding entrepreneurs can choose from a wide range of standard business plan software, PlanHQ is the first we’ve seen that allows for easy online collaboration. In the start-up phase, this means partners can work on a plan together from anywhere they can get online. Later on, investors and other stakeholders can easily keep track of how the business is developing. The online application takes what is often a static text document or spreadsheet, left for dead once banks have been convinced or investors wooed, and turns it into a tool that can be used well beyond the planning stage. Besides walking a user through the process of creating a business plan, PlanHQ lets entrepreneurs manage key business and financial information online, track finances and monitor timelines, comparing forecasts with actual performance. All in a friendly Web 2.0-style, reminiscent of online applications by 37signals. New Zealand-based PlanHQ offers a free 30-day trial and premium plans are priced from USD 9 – 49 per month. If you’ve found inspiration on Springwise and are itching to go from idea to business yourself, PlanHQ is worth checking out. Contact: Tim Norton, Spotted by: Tim de Jardine
