ENTREPRENEURSHIP - Tip #6: "Start Up Costs & Financing Your Business" includes information on the costs of getting started in a business (with suggestions for possible expenses to consider), how to finance the business, where to go for loans and the process for getting a loan, how to start up a business with little money, and how to choose vendors. We offer fill-in forms in our store for every tip/chapter should you wish to purchase it. This Tip (Chapter) is also included in the affordable "12 Tips" BUNDLE booklet which is also available here in our store on TpT.
This Tip includes a comprehensive overview of an entrepreneurs start-up costs and financing a business. Start-up cost estimates consist of three parts: Fixed assets list (furniture, equipment, and fixtures), Expenses prior to opening (purchases on beginning inventory, insurance, advertising, licenses, promotion, supplies), and Working capital (cushion of money needed in case sales don’t happen as quickly as planned). Finding money to launch and maintain your business is critical to your success. Your personal money is one of the most important money sources. Other financial sources discussed are: equity financing, silent partner, debt financing, venture capitalists, and the Small Business Administration. This Tip presents the loan application process, starting a business with little money, and more.
What? I need money to start a business? How much money do I have to have? Where do I go for a loan? How’s my credit? Mom? Dad? Anyone out there?
As a new business owner, you need to determine what it will cost to start up your business and how you are going to finance the start-up costs. What other hidden costs could you encounter as you set up your business and hopefully be profitable? In Tip #6, you will learn how to calculate your start-up costs and look at your options for financing your business.
The amount of time spent in teaching each component of the "12 Tips" booklet (including the worksheets) depends upon how the teacher intends to incorporate this resource into their coursework, whether or not they are using only certain segments of the complete "12 Tips" booklet (the BUNDLED version), the ages/grades of their students, and the amount of time they have available. Three to four weeks for the BUNDLED version (when used as the primary source) is not unreasonable.
