Assignment Steps

Resources: Free research information on local demographics and psychographic trends provided by federal (e.g. census.gov) and state government publications can be extremely useful in determining the market size of a particular industry, and coupled with industry data and entrepreneurial judgment, they can be the basis of a realistic initial revenue forecast. An online and University Library search will be required to locate appropriate resources. The Small Business Administration is also a good source of information, sba.gov

Analyze the revenue items based on information collected and determine the best estimated realistic values for these; revise as deemed necessary. Create a one year forecast using the Cash Flow Assumptions format. Conduct an Internet search or use the example located in the textbook for this course.

Include a brief Executive Summary on a separate tab in your workbook.

Explain the overall venture and any assumptions you made in preparing the Revenue estimate.

Cite a minimum of one peer reviewed reference from the University Library.

Format assignment consistent with APA guidelines.
