What is Burn Rate?

Burn rate refers to the rate at which a company spends its capital, particularly venture capital, to finance overhead before generating positive cash flow from operations. It's a measure of how quickly a company uses up its cash reserves or investments. Burn rate is crucial for startups and growth-stage companies that have yet to reach profitability.

Types of Burn Rate

Gross Burn

Gross burn is the total amount of operating expenses a company incurs in a given month. It includes all cash spent on operations and growth, such as salaries, rent, utilities, and marketing expenses.

Net Burn

Net burn takes into account the company's revenues; it's the net cash flow out of the business each month. Net burn rate is calculated by subtracting the company's monthly revenue from its gross burn rate.
