Looking to raise money while running your business more efficiently? Financial modeling basics will explore how to build, manage, and scale your business's financial model.

Assignment from Troy (in his words):
• Spend 15 minutes in Google figuring out WTF a "Financial Model" is
• Spend 15 minutes thinking about why it would be valuable for YOUR business and specifically what you want to model (hint: having the right "unit model" is KEY to making it all work)
• Spend 60 - 90 minutes building a financial model for your business. (Please do NOT use a template, but build your model from scratch with the inputs and outputs YOU think are most valuable, in the end, it will save you a LOT of time. I always start from scratch, I never even re-use my own models as I have learned the hard way that re-working an old model takes longer to get right than starting with a clean slate.)
• Send it to Troy (troy.henikoff@MATHVenturePartners.com) by 3:00pm on Sunday, 10/27!
