How to design / mockup a business plan?


Is there any software like Balsamiq Mockups to have a mockup of your business plan?
I need to show the how things will work as a biz plan instead of how things will work on the website.

As far as I saw in their page it's only about the website or applications.

Thank you.

You're looking for a "business plan template".

Both SCORE and the Small Business Association have templates available.

Sequoia Capital offers a guide and outline to what they look for in a business plan as well: Update: One of the best new tools in recent years is the business model canvas, a one-page view of all the key pieces of your business model:

In lean startups, it's meant to be an evolving document that helps you keep track of the assumptions under each category that you are testing.

I am struggling to imagine how you could apply the idea of something like balsamiq to a business plan - can you elaborate?

Are you looking at something like Outline viewing in Word where you can 'sketch' out your organisation of your document

Or something like mind mapping?
