How to Forecast Revenue & Growth for Your Business

This is a FREE Workshop sponsored by DECD. Pre-registration is required - Space is limited

Writing a business plan requires financial projections. In this advanced workrshop, you will learn how to prepare detailed financial projections, including start up costs, and projected cash flow analysis.

Workshop Requirements:

  • You have taken SCORE's Your Business--Your Money: Financial Literacy workshop or have equivalent knowledge of the key financial statements
  • A laptop capable of running Excel.
  • The Portland SCORE Financial Projections Template, which you can download here (this template fulfills requirements for commercial lenders)

As a result of this workshop, and its hands-on examples, you will better understand:


  • how to project cash flow
  • how to complete your cash flow analysis
  • how to create financial projections required for a business plan and by potential lenders


There is a critical difference between businesses that succeed and those that fail--and it's not a matter of luck. Planning and careful financial analysis are the keys to success, and financial plan is the road map for success or failure.
