What is Runway?

Your runway is how long you’ll have until your business runs out of cash, typically in months. It’s computed by dividing your total cash balance by your current burn rate.

Note that this figure assumes that you don’t raise more money, and that your revenue and expenses stay stable. If you significantly decrease your expenses, your runway will improve. Similarly, if you lose significant revenue, your runway may also become unexpectedly shortened.

It’s important to keep a close eye on your burn rate and runway at all times.
