There is much talk about the valuation of a company, but do you know how to build a financial model to actually come up with the valuation? A well-designed financial model helps you determine financing needs, acts as your company’s "resume" to financing parties, and serves as a valuable tool for negotiating with investors. The best models are those which can scale with your business, an aspect that is particularly crucial for startup founders and CFO's.
In addition to understanding how to build an effective financial model, students will learn
- the various key components of a financial model, including the income statement, cash flow, & balance sheet, and how they work together
- how to organize an income statement and cash flow statement
- a very basic valuation approach as it relates to financial modeling
- key measures for evaluating investments including discount rates, PV, NPV, and IRR
- how to build a model that can test the risks that your business faces and to guide your negotiations and decision-making processes.
