Wish I had IdeaBuddy years ago

It works fast and it is easy to use. Again, I used business planning software before.

Pros

I have business ideas all the time and I write most of them down but rarely take action beyond that. With IdeaBuddy I can quickly explore my idea and evaluate it. I keep working on those that look promising and discard bad ideas.

I am impressed with the level of detail and depth of guidance of this product. I used different business planning software before but this is different- combines cutting edge latest frameworks (business model canvas) with essential business planning tools (financials). So awesome!

Cons

If is a comprehensive tool and it takes a bit more time to fully develop the idea then I would want to invest sometimes. But that’s also a good filter for ideas - tests how passionate you really are about an idea.

Business Idea Development with IdeaBuddy

My overall experience with IdeaBuddy is great and I would really recommend it to anybody who is developing their idea as it gives you plenty of options to write down and build your idea and there is a really good connection between Business Model Mode and Story Mode.

Pros

Product is very user-friendly and easy to use and I like it that it gives you two options to develop your idea - one standard in the form of a BMC and second through the story mode.
While I find business model set-up necessary to write all the parameters down, I found Story Mode even more useful as my business idea is client-orientated so this option helped me imagine through which possible steps clients will go.

Cons

I wouldn't say I found any cons, rather it is something that confuses me - When creating a new idea you can either choose from pre-configured Business set-ups or create your own and when choosing between these two option I would wish to have a bit more explanation what each one of these two options will give me.

With Ideabuddy, i was able to easily generate my y1 financial projections, costs, profits etc which really helped me out

Pros

Ideabuddy is a very useful and very to use for the business. Its most impactful feature is its financial plan which helps in having the approximate projections for the business financials.

Cons

Umm.. Ideabuddy needs to update the software a little bit for it's lag while loading the financial plan and editing the details.
