Sample Plans

Since it is offered at a lower price for student use, the Academic Edition of Business Plan Pro has a couple of notable limitations related to its library of sample business plans.

Academic vs. retail sample plans

The academic edition includes only 68 of the 500+ sample business plans available in the full retail edition of the product. This was commonly requested by professors to make it easier to keep students from passing off sample plans as their own.

Also, the plan documents that it produces are identified with "Academic Version" as a watermark and in the document footer. Here's an example:
