Building a financial model is no simple task, especially if your startup is pre-revenue. Most founders don’t do it correctly and lose investors’ credibility.

Here are the five most common mistakes founders make in their financial models:

Revenues are not connected to the company’s go-to-market strategy, product development, labor, and capital constraints. Instead, they are modeled either as an arbitrary percentage of market share or as an arbitrary number growing at an arbitrary rate.

Financial model inputs and business logic don’t properly represent the company’s strategy.

An income statement is provided in place of a full financial model.

The use of funds is not calculated correctly because they overlook certain expenses.

Valuation is either missed altogether or not determined properly.

It takes a lot of time and specific knowledge, which many founders do not have. That is why we introduce our fully customizable and complete templates that you can choose the one which fits you best depending on your business model.
