Opening your own LivePlan account from a SBDC account

If you're working with a local Small Business Development Center (SBDC), and they give you a promo code to set up your own LivePlan account using the SBDC discount, this article will show you how to use that code.

Note: If you've already started using LivePlan through a contributor pass you were issued by the SBDC, you can still use the same email address, with their access code, to establish your own independent account.


Converting your contributor or guest access to a full account

  1. Sign in to LivePlan using the email address and password that you use to sign in as a contributor or guest.

  2. In the lower-left corner of the page, click on the Account menu. Select Switch Accounts:

  7. Click Sign up to create your own LivePlan account:

Once you have created your new account, you will be able to switch between your own account and any companies you have contributor or guest access for. You'll also have all the features of a standard LivePlan account.

You'll want to have your business plan moved from the SBDC account to your own account. To do this, simply email your SBDC contact with your request and they will reach out to us to complete the transfer.
