Speak-On: Projecting Cash Budgets for a New Venture
In August 2018, the founder of Speak-On, was finalizing plans for his company's first year of operations.

He planned to project a cash budget for fiscal year 2018 and do a sensitivity analysis on his projections to determine the amount of additional financing needed. Did Speak-On require external financing, and would the line of credit support the cash needed?
