Work through the tools, track progress and see the way your information links to form a joined-up business proposition. As you complete a tool, the next tool becomes available and uses the information you entered previously to eliminate any repeated data input. The resulting financial, marketing and business plans automatically summarise and draw charts to visualise your information clearly.

We offer a free preview of all the tools, just sign up for your account and get started.

Once you have an account, you can work on your plans from any device, wherever you are.

Download a market research questionnaire tailored to your business, and export your final plans to Word. Complete the diagnostics to get a better sense of who you are and how you will cope with running your own business.
