Statement of Cash Flow
My comments to an excellent post from Fred Wilson:
"Great topic. The Statement of Cash Flows, or Sources/Uses can be helpful to model cash flows in an out of the company, receivables, payables etc. I'm not an expert or an accountant but a useful tool. I think accurate projections beyond 12-18 months are probably difficult, but having the model can be an asset, even for very early companies. Beyond 24 months it is more of a strategic as opposed to operating template? Also a tool to project external funding to cash flow positive, but given the number of variables for a high growth model, probably not very accurate. Plans are useless but the planning process is indispensible."
I should be careful not to overuse the Eisenhower quote, but it's such a great quote!
