Questions to Answer Before Starting Your Venture





Making a cash flow analysis is very important. Use a computer model in one of these areas: Research and Development, Manufacturing, Wholesale, Distribution, Retail, Services, Software, Real Estate, Consulting. Each area is an entirely different model. Note: Trying to go from R&D to Retail with one business is another formula for disaster.




Make three models of assumptions for Good, Likely, and Worst Case Scenarios and solve for financial requirements.


Innovative Financial Services




Develop a decision matrix that compares profit, cash requirements, financial ratios, and break-even calculations to find the highest ROI with lowest capitalization.

How much money is needed to reach startup, the first year of operation, how much and when do you need it?

Do you have it? Where will it come from?




Will it be Debt or Equity? And, how much equity is required to obtain the financing?
