"Whoever has the gold makes the rules... " 
The Golden Rule


Entrepreneurs and early management teams often miscalculate their funding requirements, total capital needed, and timing of capital infusion. Errors result in:

  • Loss of momentum or scaled-back operations

  • Unfavorable ownership and valuation terms

  • Management repeatedly raising capital and not running the daily business

Specifically understanding capital requirements is not a black art - it’s a process. Determining potential sources of capital requires matching a company’s needs against all available sources. Today’s capital markets look for business plans detailing the timing and amounts of: operational and capital expenses, revenue and cash flow projections resulting in an accumulative view of total capital requirements.
