If the new year means you have plans to channel your inner entrepreneur and start a new business, you'll need a plan first. Enloop is a web service that will help you build your business plan from start to finish.
We've discussed how you can build your own business plan, and even offered up a templates, but Enloop goes a step further. You start by describing in detail what your idea is and what your business will do, and calculate how much money you'll need to get your idea off the ground.
By the time you're finished, the app will help you understand how well developed your plan is, help you perfect it, and give you a tidy, illustrated package that you can show to potential investors or partners to get them on board with your idea. Alternatively, you can just use the tool as a way to plan your own self-employment moves so you don't make a costly or preventable mistake. The service is free, with more advanced features available for a monthly subscription fee.
