Below is a breakdown of the monthly operational expenses required to keep Simbi.com up and running. Notes:
- This monthly budget doesn’t include any costs that would be required to improve Simbi’s services or platform (see “Stretch Goals” below). But, one step at a time!
- Rest assured that these numbers will change considerably as Simbi moves through different phases.
- Finally, members of the Simbi community can always see our current revenue in real-time from Simbi Supporters.
