Wells Fargo is now providing business planning and startup advice here. This is interesting for a few reasons:

The advice is fairly comprehensive and spans a variety of topics. The site includes a business planning tool. Their business planning advice includes discussions of competitive advantage, financial statements, and cash flow (which are topics that I have always considered to be important).

In the past, banks have not always provided this type of advice due to time, resource, or expertise constraints or due to potential lender liability.

This site affirms that the business plan is still considered important by a potential financing source.
