to continue their mission
to help make the world a better place.

Importance of Financial Statements
To assess whether its financial objectives are being met, firms rely heavily on analysis of financial statements.

A financial statement is a written report that quantitatively describes a firm’s financial health.

The income statement, the balance sheet, and the statement of cash flow are the financial statements entrepreneurs use most commonly.
The Process of Financial Management
Historically, commercial banks have not been viewed as a practical sources of financing for start-up firms.
This sentiment is not a knock against banks; it is just that banks are risk adverse, and financing start-ups is a risky business.
Banks are interested in firms that have a strong cash flow, low leverage, audited financials, good management, and a healthy balance sheet.
Commercial Banks
Initial Public Offering

An initial public offering (IPO) is a company’s first sale of stock to the public. When a company goes public, its stock is traded on one of the major stock exchanges.

An IPO is an important milestone for a firm. Typically, a firm is not able to go public until it has demonstrated that it is viable and has a bright future.

Cash Flow
How cash flows in and out of your business

Cash Flow is Key!

You can show a profit
on your P&L
and still have cash
flow problems – Why?
Is the ability to earn a profit.

Many start-ups are not profitable during their first one to three years while they are investing in resources, training employees and building their brands.

CASH FLOW - a company’s ability to meet its short-term financial obligations.

LIQUIDITY: how quickly assets can be converted into CASH (Which assets can you sell fast?)

Make sure your
gross margin percentage
is greater than
your expense percentage
