Centro Business Planning App

Centro is stewarding the development of mobile apps that help you create and maintain a business plan using just your phone or tablet. We are doing this with a single goal in mind: to provide underserved entrepreneurs everywhere with affordable, culturally appropriate and high-impact enterprise-building tools.

What our ApP does

The Centro Business Planning App will help you plan for a new business step by step without having any entrepreneurship training or experience. Following simple activities, today our app can:

  • Compose a basic business plan

  • Create a budget and income statement

  • Assess your creditworthiness

  • Access a Kiva loan for up to 10K if you are in the U.S., and soon connect to our growing network of microlenders

It also allows you to update your business plan anytime, store it securely and share it with anyone you want.

A tool for business coaches

We are a young nonprofit, and we are excitedly strategizing and laying the groundwork for entrepreneurship education through mobile devices. Yet in this pathway, we uphold the value an adequate business coach can have for any entrepreneur.

In response to this, we created the Basic Entrepreneurship Education Suite so that small business coaches and other groups dedicated to entrepreneurship development can be more effective in their work.


If you have feedback, requests or any questions about our mobile app, do not hesitate to contact Naldo Peliks at naldo@centrocommunity.org.
