Failed new ventures often trace the failure back to one's inability to match macroeconomic with microeconomic sectoral data. And not accounting for critical demographic and economic project influences. That won't happen when the Affinitas team are on your side.

In most cases, time-series cash flow projections, including income and expenses, are an essential part of the research project. Assessing the project’s present value by time-discounting future cash flows is an exacting exercise that ultimately defines the risk and reward of going forward. Based on the expected requirements of debt and equity, our modeling will present the most probable scenarios and estimate return on invested capital.

The following is a checklist of feasibility study subsets that we can tailor to your needs based on budget and project requirements:

1. Project Overview & Opinion on feasibility
2. Targeted marketing including an overview, micro-research, and competitive analysis
3. Legal overview of the project
