If you can read and surf the Internet, you’re ready for Cyberport/BizGym. This includes any student old enough to text message, inventors, people with big ideas, home-based & small business folks, startups, and yes, even the most sophisticated entrepreneurs and CEOs.

Can I print Templates & Reports?

Yes. But you’ll need to upgrade to PLUS or PRO Membership first. Once you’ve upgraded, you can download either RFT or PDF versions of templates and reports which you can then print. For example, for your business plan, you’ll be downloading an RFT (Rich Text File) that is readable by any word processing or page layout program such as Word, Pages, etc. In effect, you’ll be importing your Business Plan into your word processor where you can tweak fonts, layout, colors and the like to make your plan look any way you want. Further, you can delete any sections that don’t apply to your circumstance. For visual reports like the StoryTree, you’ll be able to download a PDF image which you can print from.
