Startup Business Model (DEMO)

Startup Model for early-stage CEOs

NOTE: An UNLOCKED version of this model can be purchased at:

At ExcelModels we create world-class templates that produce multi-year forecasts by month.
We value form and function equally. Our models are powerful and highly intuitive, built for new users and experts alike.

We color-code cells to prompt for inputs which drive financial formulas that produce Board-ready, GAAP-compliant Pro Forma financials.

Each business model produces a forecasted Income Statement, Balance Sheet, and Statement of Cash Flows.

This Startup Model is perfect for pre-revenue, early-stage companies. It is meant for the CEO who wants a 4-year model based on a sales forecast and a limited number of financial inputs.

Features include:
● Global Inputs tab for 48-month model
● Up to 5 Revenue sources
● Payroll and Operating Expense worksheets
● Capital Expense worksheet with Depreciation schedule
● Equity worksheet for planning fundraising rounds, dilution effects, ROI by year, and valuation
● Integrated Income Statement, Balance Sheet, and Cash Flow Statement
● DCF Valuation tab

As with all models at ExcelModels, checks and balances are in-place, highlighting areas (such as a negative cash balance) where the user needs to adjust assumptions elsewhere.

This template contains clearly-labeled input cells, focusing the user on key assumptions they control, prompting an accurate forecast.

We provide customization and build-out for an additional fee.
Please contact us for more information.
