Monthly cash flow forecasting made easy.
Anticipate potential cash shortages and funding requirements months ahead with Finance Navigator’s automatically generated monthly cash flow forecast. Based on your forecast all cash in-and outflows are listed on a monthly basis in our cash flow overview, making it easy for you to spot potential liquidity problems that can lead to bankruptcy. Add financing/funding streams to your forecast as well and see how they impact your cash position, so you know when it’s time to raise funding.

In this way you’ll be prepared for scenarios in which your startup performs worse than expected or, if you’re lucky, better!
