Are you burning through the cash?


More runway, lower cash burn

As a startup founder, you're well aware that runway - the time your company can operate with its existing cash reserves - is a critical factor. While managing significant expenses is essential, it's often the operational costs that catch startups off guard. You must learn how to optimise your runway while keeping an eye on the bottom line.

Every dollar counts, especially when you're in the early stages of building your business.  While focusing on major expenses is crucial, don't underestimate the impact of other costs.  For instance, cloud platform spending can quickly escalate if left unchecked.

So, does that mean you have to eyeball every cent you spend? Well, yes. But if that takes your attention away from mission-critical tasks like acquisition and product development, it might not seem worth the effort. Luckily, there’s a solution for that.
