Start-Up Costs

This section is for start-up costs (known or estimated). Story so far:

  • Move-in cost for space : $4000
  • Three months' rent reserve : $5925 at $1975/mo rent
  • Cost of incorporation as non-profit + 501c3 app : $2000
  • Initial insurance cost : $500 - $2500 per year
  • Initial cost for drinks to sell : ??
  • Initial cost for space improvements, making keys, etc. : ??
  • Noisebridge business Costco card : $50
  • Initial equipment costs : ??

Estimate so far for start-up cost: $14475 + ??.

DavidMolnar ideally would like to see 2x whatever this estimated number is as starting capital, but that may be overkill.
