From The Day-To-Day To Future Success
Budgeting And Forecasting Helps You Plan For It All
For each business, there are typically 3-5 key factors that do more than measure performance – they drive your business growth. By understanding your business better through model forecasts, pinpointed critical success factors and information that is organized in a way that you and your investors can see it, measure it and articulate it, you are better positioned to accurately measure your performance.
In order to achieve all of this, you need to budget and forecast for your business. Not only will this help you to manage your cash flow, capital investment strategy and burn rate, but they also become essential for any fundraising or strategic planning activities.
Forecasting For Your Business
Annual sales forecasts go beyond a “check box” exercise to meet reporting requirements. By periodically reviewing historical performance, you gain an opportunity to critically evaluate the profitability of key sales channels and mine financial data to uncover hidden growth potential.
Forecasting For A Capital Raise
Raising money to fund the growth of your business is often a key activity for emerging growth companies. Sophisticated venture capital firms examine your forecasts and assumptions with a close and critical eye. When you have a well thought out plan with solid financials, pertinent graphs, relevant assumptions, appropriate growth models, and realistic targets, you turn the critical eye of the potential investor or banker into an advocate for your burgeoning business.
A customized forecast and financial plan from an experienced financial guide gives you the tools and information you need.
