Event description

Description

Financial projections are critical when raising money. Investors are expecting founders to include the financial projections in their deck and be able to tell their startup story with numbers. Investors will ask you to back up your assumptions and explain your numbers and ratios. Are you prepared?

Join us for a great hands-on workshop on how to build your financial projections and do financial modeling with Efrat Kasznik, Lecturer at the Stanford Graduate School of Business.

She is a contributor to many publications, including VentureBeat, Business Journals, etc. She is also a Mentor at the Stanford Venture Studio Incubator, as well as a mentor at several other incubators, accelerators, angel groups and venture capital firms.

Efrat will share with us advice on how to build a robust business and financial model based upon realistic expectations and sound assumptions and successfully communicate your financial vision and expectations to investors.

Drinks and Chinese food dinner will be provided.
