Runway

The amount of time (usually expressed in months) before the startup goes bankrupt without additional funding. 

For example, if a startup has no revenues, has expenses of $20,000 per month, and has $100,000 in the bank, it has a "runway" of five months.

It's common for most startups to have between 6 to 18 months of runway.
