Many founders and entrepreneurs come from backgrounds outside of the accounting and finance worlds and find it cumbersome dealing with spreadsheets to forecast financials for their start-ups. Let’s demystify the world of financial modeling.
What Is Financial Modeling? ❓
Financial modeling is the process where a person creates a story through the lens of numbers and mathematics. Models are often used to help predict the future and help organizations prepare for what the future holds. Financial modeling is critical in new businesses or start-ups when the founders plan to raise money from outside investors. Investors often want to see some documentation that outlines the business idea and present what the company expects to make from a financial perspective. This documentation is usually where the graphs and diagrams help communicate how much money your company will make.
Why Is Financial Modeling so Difficult? 🤬
Financial modeling is often challenging for folks that don’t have a financial background. Think about all those math, accounting, finance majors. These majors carry some pretty hefty vocabulary and use numbers a lot. It often makes something so simple seem much more complicated. This complexity is a problem that Finply solves.
