Found Money

Going Pro

If you've been in business for one year or more, another tool you may find useful is Moneysoft's LenderPro ($295). Although it's geared toward established companies, this DOS program can still help a relatively young business prepare an effective proposal for expansion capital or project-based funding requests.

In LenderPro's Analysis section, you enter and analyze historic financial data. This includes income statements, balance sheets and monthly sales cycles. Then the Report Writer compiles this data into a narrative report. You can edit it in a word processor and customize the report format for future use.
