Financial Plan

Prepare a PowerPoint presentation that details a financial plan for the company YOU select for your business plan. This must be a NEW company that you would like to start. Keep it simple. Most students tend to choose a coffee shop, cupcake store, etc, but you are free to choose anything so long as it makes sense for this assignment. This assignment must be done in PowerPoint in APA format. No other formats will be accepted (ie Word). This financial plan will be included in your final business plan in your capstone course. To be clear, you get to choose your own start-up for this assignment. If you were to open up your own company, what would you do? How would you get started?

Describe the business, including the type of business. Create the business case. Determine why and how much funding is needed for the company. Determine the sources of funding. Consider self-funding, borrowing, equity, venture capital, etc. Evaluate the requirements of each funding source you determined appropriate. Analyze the associated risks of each funding source. Decide which sources are the best fit for your company based on the requirements of each. Justify your decision. Estimate the cost of capital for both short-term and long-term funding sources. Research current estimated APRs for your selected sources of funding. Create a profit-and-loss statement for a 3-year period. Project revenue, stating realistic assumptions, such as growth per year, in your projections. Estimate direct costs, including marketing, labor, supply costs, etc.
