About Your Signature Assignment

This signature assignment is designed to align with specific program  student learning outcome(s) in your program. Program Student Learning  Outcomes are broad statements that describe what students should know  and be able to do upon completion of their degree. The signature  assignments may be graded with an automated rubric that allows the  University to collect data that can be aggregated across a location or  college/school and used for program improvements.

Purpose of Assignment

The purpose of this assignment is to allow  the student an opportunity to apply their understanding of cash flow  management, break-even analysis, and short-term and long-term financing  in starting and growing a business.

Assignment Steps

Resources: OECD Database, Corporate Finance

Prepare a 12- to 15-slide PowerPoint® presentation  with speaker notes requesting initial funding of $500,000 to start and  run a start-up company. The proposed start-up company could be an  existing business model (coffee shop, pet store, etc.) or could be  something entirely new and exciting.

Create the presentation in the following format, with at least one slide to cover each of the following areas:

  • Title Page
  • Table of Contents
  • Executive Summary
  • Information about the Industry
  • Marketing Plan
  • Competitor Analysis
  • 3 Year Income Statement (Profit & Loss) Projections
  • Include your assumptions for why and how you will achieve your sales  growth and what significant expenses and investments you expect to  incur to achieve your revenue goals.
  • 3 Year Proposed Funding Schedule (Sources and uses of the funds received.)
  • Break-Even Analysis
  • Academic and Business References

Review the following scenarios and assumption, and explain how it impacts your decision to expand:

  • After Year 3, the investors are interested in your company expanding  internationally to possibly outsource labor or to reduce manufacturing  costs. What countries would you expand to first, and why? What factors  would you need to consider in making this decision?
  • What is the corporate tax rate in the countries you are considering  expanding your business to, and how will that affect your decision to  expand globally? (Use OECD Database or another resource to determine the  corporate tax rate).
  • The investors want to see a decision tree detailing the decisions  you would make if you received $300K now and $200K at the end of three  years instead of $500K up front.
  • The investors would like your team to provide advantages and  disadvantages of using debt financing versus selling company stock to  raise capital for growth.
  • Briefly explain the venture capital process. Does it make sense for your company to raise funds through venture capital?

Format your presentation consistent with APA guidelines.
