Palo Alto Software Government Program

Palo Alto Software is proud of its partnership with various national, state, regional, and local government agencies, working together to help America's new entrepreneurs. We offer a number of resources to benefit both your government agency and your clients.


We are longtime supporters and partners of the U.S. Small Business Administration. With an aligned vision of helping to start, build and grow businesses, we have worked together to provide valuable resources on the SBA website. We support and partner with a number of the organizations under the SBA umbrella.


We are proud of our longstanding partnership with America's Small Business Development Centers (ASBDC) throughout the world. Through our partnership, tools, and resources, together we have helped countless entrepreneurs start and grow their businesses. We continue to sponsor and attend the ASBDC conference annually and donate thousands of copies of software to SBDC counselors.

"Our clients' successes depend upon consistent, high-quality counseling throughout our Network. Palo Alto has generously supported both the Oregon Small Business Development Center Network and our national Association of Small Business Development Centers with contributions of software and training. These quality tools are substantial in assisting our success with clients."

We are excited to be involved with SCORE - Counselors to America's Small Business - as we work together to help America's entrepreneurs and growing businesses. We attend the annual Leadership Conference and provide planning resources and software to assist with SCORE's business and marketing planning workshops. We hope to continue to help SCORE meet and exceed their goals of increasing client engagements, counseling more organizations currently in business, and helping more clients start new businesses.

Chamber of Commerce

As Chamber of Commerce offices are committed to shaping their local communities and growing business, we are proud to be a partner and assist with their mission. We provide planning software for internal use and other planning resources to benefit community members taking advantage of the Chamber’s resources.

Evaluation software

Increase repeat client engagements and help develop successful businesses in your community with the help of our software. Recommend the software to clients to assist them in writing a convincing plan.

We provide official government agencies with evaluation copies of Business Plan Pro and Marketing Plan Pro software. Both are great tools that allow you to create custom outlines for your clients, easily read and revise plans developed by your clients, and continue to work with your clients as they grow their businesses.
