Blivande Open Finance Lab

This document describes the current finances and the current plan for the years ahead. We want to share this so that we can better understand each other when we talk about what Blivande can and cannot afford.
We mean for this to be a transparent look at how the Blivande core team thinks we might grow from July 2022 to December 2025. Remember that the . Unexpected things will happen and this plan will most likely change. For example, we might apply for new project grants like the or get new clients like the Valla project. Nevertheless, we need a plan to have a common understanding of why we make our choices.
To make it simpler to get an overview we only look at how things may change between quarters. Each row refers to the income and expenses per month in that quarter. For example, on the row

We predict when that might happen so that we can take steps to prevent it. Up to now Blivande has never had to take out a loan or credit, except for the initial loan of 300,000 SEK from co-founder Hampus.
