One of the most critical aspects that most entrepreneurs find while starting a business is to raise startup capital. Gone are the days when investors pitch in money just by hearing a new technology idea. Today, entrepreneurs are more like a one-man army striving to win a battle and stay alive. But, if you do not have the cash to start up your own business, would you do? Luckily, there are still options available out there for funding new companies, but finding this funding and securing the cash can take a good amount of negotiating skills, careful research and above all extensive commitment into launching a new business.
Finances play a very important part in the growth of your company at various stages. Here are some places where your startup capital will go:
- Payroll for you as well as your employees
- Utilities which includes internet/ phone/ electricity etc.
- Sales and marketing expenses
Making sure that you have enough and more money to meet all your expenses and have some extra to carry on your business in the first year of operation is the core deal here.

Forecasting Your Cash Flow:
One of the biggest reasons why most new businesses fail is because they do not have enough cash flow to sustain their company.
