In July 2000, two founders of this new web-hosting company are contemplating raising $5 million to $15 million in a second-round financing from venture capitalists. The task for the student is to forecast the firm's cash receipts and disbursements in an effort to determine the firm's “burn rate” (i.e., the rate of cash consumption and how long the financing will sustain the firm). The new economy setting of this case permits the instructor to extend well-known financial skills and concepts to an industry that attracts high student interest.
