@kleneway thanks Kevin!
@alexchudik & @wilschroter looks great, amazing addition to the startups.co platform of products
@alexchudik darn, I didn't see the 50% off code before I signed up today, but I'll use it for next month. So far I'm impressed and it's making my job of putting together a pitch for a new venture easier! Thanks
@alexchudik I absolutely agree. The website looks great. Now let's see if it works.
Is that just Knowlium but with different landing page? All screenshots look very much the same.

@tahorg indeed, checked their page, very much the same, the graphs, the "Revenue Forecaster" is completely the same
@tahorg White-labeled maybe?
@imchrisdavis I honestly don't know. But the fact pricing is absolutely identical made me thought they are same products.
@tahorg @imchrisdavis We worked with the Knowlium team on this because we loved the Knowlium product. Knowlium, however, is still its own product/company/brand.
Fantastic modular approach to business planning. My favorite feature is the automatic financial projections ;)

@wilschroter @startups would love to give it a try! Wil I'll shoot you an email!
@nellieliina @startups Would be great to catch up anyway Nelli
@wilschroter sounds great. I think a sandbox area would be great. At least enough to discover it's value.
@wilschroter @startups I would definitely like to try it out. Will shoot you an email!
@wilschroter @startups That's awesome. Would love to give this a try for developing business plans for products as well

I was initially very excited to use Bizplan. As a founder, I would much rather be working on tasks that directly impact the success of the business, not accounting. However, when I started using this platform, it seems to be very poorly designed. It's very buggy.

The very first page broke and I had to manually change an HTTP request to get by. Finally it asked me to upgrade to premium, even though I was already a premium user. I started to enter some financial data and it kept failing to save, or closing out on me.

Beyond the bugs, the design of the platform is sub-par. It's not overly easy to navigate and could certainly be described as confusing.

All-in-all, I would not recommend BizPlan to my greatest competitor/enemy. Avoid this product at all costs.

Pros:

It looks nice

Cons:

Very buggy and not a lot of functionality
