CSS provides enterprise-corporate planning software solutions. We identify companies' planning needs and work with a third-party manufacturer to create software to address these needs. Although the actual software is produced out-of-house, we guarantee the customer the right solution.
Start-up expenses, which cover phone calls, office furniture, letterhead and business cards come to $3,050. We also need $11,000 of cash on hand. These costs will either be financed by owner investment or through financing from the software manufacturing partner. Details and assumptions are summarized in the following chart and table.
The company will be located in a home-based office in Portland, Oregon. This location is ideal, as it is close to the software manufacturer's facilities and several of the first potential clients' home offices.
