Just got this from one of my gossip lists. Perhaps the council that is
offering Entrepreneurship MB would like to purchase a copy for camp use!
(Just for the record, I don't have any interest in the company!)

GIVE 'EM THE BUSINESS
You've got that entrepreneurial spirit. You've got that urge to create
a new company. What you don't got is a plan or the money to make it
happen. Enter the small yet mighty Palo Alto Software, makers of the
top-rated business planning software, Business Plan Pro. Palo Alto
will sell you the latest version, 3.0, for $89.95 to help you get a
plan. (Alas, the money will have to wait until you present the plan to
the right banker or venture capitalist).
Business Plan Pro 3.0 is an easy-to-use business-plan package for
Windows that features context-sensitive audio help, 20 sample business
plans, a database of venture capitalists, customizable business
charts, and professional-looking full-color printouts.
Business Plan Pro 3.0's Plan Wizard lets you customize a plan to fit
your business, then follow seven straightforward steps to write your
business plan. The program now includes row-by-row help in the form of
online instructions, and an easy way to import and edit graphics for
your business plan. Palo Alto Software also updates the program from
its Web site on a regular basis. If you want to try your hand at a
business plan before forking over the cash, you can also download a
trial version of Business Plan Pro 3.0 from the Palo Alto Software Web
