Get Started!

If you’re reading this, it’s because you’re raising money or researching the best ways to raise money for your pre-seed, seed or Series A round and you:

Overwhelmed with getting your business off the ground and don’t have the time to learn finance or get an MBA.


Know you need to create credible financials for your startup, but finance intimidates you and you simply don’t know where to start.


Lack the financial knowledge and tools to translate your business plan into a financial model and determine the fair value of your company.


Think it's impossible to create credible assumptions and predict the company's financial performance at such an early stage.


Might have already tried putting your own financial model using templates from the Internet, but have not been successful in attracting investors.


Does it sound familiar?

99% of startup founders are afraid of the terms Pro-forma Financials, Balance Sheet, Types of Cash Flow, WACC, IRR, and especially, Valuation.

99.9% of startup founders don’t understand how to logically estimate demand for their pre-revenue ventures.

You are also not sure having financials will really help you in the fundraising process.

Having a proper financial model WILL help you accelerate your fundraising process because it will provide investors with the necessary level of detail of how you plan to bring your product to market.

Testimonials

"These workshops are extremely useful for all of us. Victoria is the kind of presenter/professional who inspires confidence. I'd recommend her to any startup trying to figure out how it needs to be organized, capitalized, and operated to have a good business model going forward. She focuses on fundamentals, which, too often, are sorely lacking in our ecosystem, and she knows her stuff backwards and forwards."

- Warren Friesner, Language Hero

"Victoria's workshops are packed full of INCREDIBLY useful information and tools that apply to all levels of business. She is very knowledgeable with the material and able to explain complex finance topics eloquently (even to an engineer!). Workshops are highly recommended!"

- Gregory Chrin, Apis Innovation

"I have taken a couple of classes with Victoria and I must say they are great! The topics and material she goes through I find it very very useful. You can tell Victoria has a lot of experience in the field. She is very clear, and you get all the material covered so you can review it yourself. As an early startup, this is definitely the most valuable workshop I have tried so far, I highly recommend it!"

- Luis Medina, CodeLumen
