We’re proud to announce two new additions to our portfolio of crowdfunding resources; the Profit Margin Calculator and Cash Flow Calculator. These calculators are designed to help entrepreneurs improve their business planning and fundraising efforts, and like our other crowdfunding tools and resources, they are free to use.
The Profit Margin Calculator helps entrepreneurs better understand their gross profit, gross profit margin, operating profit, operating profit margin, net profit, and net profit margin. It also compares these key financial metrics to the average of peer businesses in the same industry sector by using our database of thousands of companies, a capability that is unavailable with any other online profit margin calculator.
The Cash Flow Calculator helps entrepreneurs evaluate their operating cash flow, free cash flow, and cash liquidity balance. Like the Profit Margin Calculator, the Cash Flow Calculator leverages our multi-patented Enterprise Analyzer™ system to help entrepreneurs determine if they’re on the right track as they prepare to raise capital and pursue their business opportunities.
Much like our existing Startup Risk Calculator and Startup Valuation Calculator, results from the Profit Margin Calculator and Cash Flow Calculator are based on real market data we gathered from more than 6,000 privately-held businesses across North America. Together, these calculators let entrepreneurs refine their business planning strategies and analyze multiple scenarios that could have an impact on their companies.
With the addition of these new calculators, we continue to provide a vast amount of educational content to help entrepreneurs prepare to start a crowdfunding campaign and provide anyone with an interest in crowdfunding a clear and concise view of the business crowdfunding landscape. EquityNet has operated the longest running business crowdfunding platform and has trends and statistics based on over 6,000 businesses that used our platform from 2007 to 2015. Our complimentary crowdfunding charts allow anyone to discover research statistics about the crowdfunding market using our unique platform data. And, our crowdfunding terminology page is a large and constantly growing resource of terminology common to the crowdfunding industry.
