Excel Templates for estimating the following are downloadable from this website for use by students and book users--you will need the template to develop a business plan that includes a cash flow projection for 3 to 5 years--see cash flow example below that was developed by a student team. A cash-flow projection is one of the few inputs used by potential investors to arrive at a pre-investment valuation of the company before making an investment. To make an investment of $200,000 in a company valued at $1,000,000, an investor would seek 20% ownership.
