The purpose of this thread is to gather data and references that pertain to the costs associated with starting up an engineering consulting business. As a part of a business plan that I am putting together I am trying to forecast the start-up and operating costs needed to get the business off the ground (i.e., before revenue is really being generated). Does anyone know of a reliable source of information (e.g., websites, books, papers, personal spreadsheets etc.) that could be referenced to make sure that I do not overlook anything and also to help me temper the tendency to over estimate a bunch of unnecessary costs?
I will be very grateful for any/all information that can be offered/suggested. Thank you in advance!
