Objective:

These are: how to add, subtract,multiply and divide using spreadsheets. This allows them to focus on theirprojections and not spend valuable time learning how to use the intricacies of a spreadsheet that they will never need. Another key objective is to teach entrepreneurs how to build their projections fromthe bottom up as opposed to a top down approach. This is widely regarded as themost accurate method and, therefore, more likely to attract a potential investor’sinterest.

On completion, entrepreneurs will be able to design customized financialprojections and modify them as future plans change. They will be able to buildaccurate sales projections based on market research. They will be able to accurately identify their expenses and compare them to industry norms. They will have therequired skills to stress test their financials in anticipation of questions a potential Venture Capitalist or Business Angel may ask.The financial projections will take the form of:1)An Assumptions Page2)Profit and Loss/Income Projections3)Cash Flow Projections4)Balance Sheet
Benefits:
Entrepreneurs will be able to adapt and assess their financial projectionsin real time, as their business model and strategy evolves. They will save valuablestart-up cash because the need for outsourcing the development of their company’sfinancial projections will not now be necessary.They will be much better positioned to answer difficult questions posed by VentureCapitalists and Business Angels regarding their financial projections. Mostimportantly, they will become more aware of the link between their financialprojections and their day to day activities.
