At ExcelModels we create world-class templates that produce multi-year monthly forecasts.
Our models are powerful and highly intuitive, built for new users and experts alike.
As with all models at ExcelModels, this template contains clearly-labeled input cells, focusing the user on key assumptions they control.

This Startup Business Model provides a 48-month forecast for a pre-revenue, early-stage business with up to 5 Product lines. It is meant for the CEO who has a reliable 4-year sales forecast and a general sense of his/her company's starting strength.

Features include:
● Centralized input sheet for Revenue, COGS, commissions, and key starting balances
● Worksheets for Payroll & Operating Expense
● Capital Expense worksheet and Depreciation schedule
● Equity plan with guidelines for various rounds of funding
● 4-year Pro Forma Income Statement, Balance Sheet, and Cash Flow Statement
● DCF Valuation

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.

We also provide model customization and build-out for an additional fee.
Please contact us in a private email for more information.
