FINANCIAL MODELING FOR STARTUPS
WEDNESDAY FEBRUARY 28 @ NOON PST
WHAT IS STARTUP FINANCE?
The world of corporate finance is dominated by middle market data. If you’re building a startup, you don’t want to follow this protocol.
I’ll show you how to build a financial model based on early stage data.
HOW DO I FIND MY GROWTH EQUATION?
The number one goal of any startup is growth. So how do you know if your company’s growth is on track?
I’ll explain how to determine your company’s growth equation and ensure product market fit.
CASE STUDY: ENTERPRISE VS CONSUMER
Understanding what it takes to deliver your product or service to your target audience is critical to building a solid company.
I’ll walk you through a real life example of two successful companies – one in enterprise and one in consumer.
