Financial Projections (WBC 4/26/22)

April 26 @ 6:00 pm - 9:00 pm

Duration: 3 hours

Before starting a business, one must have an idea if the business will be a viable venture or not. How does one do this? One of the ways to do this is by running the Financial Projections.
The Financial Projections class takes participants through the simulation of a business’ financial statements, giving them an idea of what it would take to realistically survive in today’s market given their chosen assumptions.
