Can I Make Money? 

Creating a Financial Forecast

Registration is from 5:15 PM to 5:45 PM; sign-in and network with other entrepreneurs and SCORE volunteer business experts.  Get a good seat for the program that begins promptly at 5:45 PM.  

Before using your hard-earned cash to start a new business, buy a business or improve your existing business it helps to know if putting your cash in the bank would reap better rewards.  Learn how to model your business performance by creating a simple pro-forma income statement. 

After completing this workshop, you will have a better understanding of boxes #8 and #9 of the Business Model Canvas, "Cost Structure" and "Revenue Streams", as explained by SCORE mentors.

EXTRA BONUS: Free Pro-Forma Review

If you already have a mentor with SCORE, you can email the creators of this workshop, steve.rogers@score volunteer.org and joe.anziano@scorevolunteer.org, to have them analyze your Pro-Forma following the event.

Why Create a Pro-Forma?

If you plan to start a new business:
  • How much money will you spend before opening the doors?
  • How long before you start making money?
  • Which products/services will make you successful?
If you plan to buy a business:
  • Historical results are in the financial statements.
  • Where are the strengths and weaknesses?
  • Going forward, how will you build on the strengths and eliminate weaknesses?
If you want to improve your existing business:
  • Change your business model to make more profit.
