In this series you will learn everything you need to know in order to model an early stage software and service startup.

The material assumes basic knowledge of accounting and corporate finance because the first accounting class and the third valuation class are not included.

The series offers over 4 hours of MBA-level finance lectures, 200+ practice questions, and a complete downloadable functional financial model for a fictional startup with subscription and advertising revenue streams. All other PowerPoint and Excel materials are available for download as well.

If you buy this package, you get $50 off vs. buying each course individually.

Access to the video content and practice questions is available on a monthly basis. The series is designed to be completed in 30 days and you can cancel your subscription by the end of the month. However, if you need access to the video content and/or practice questions for longer, you can extend the existing subscription for as many months as you like. You can also buy a different subscription to any other course or series and you can cancel it before you are charged the next month's fee.

The series covers:

1. Modeling basics: How to formulate assumptions for seven business models that prevail in early stage software and service startups.

Frequently Asked Questions

How long is each course?
Each course has anywhere from 75 min to 120 min of lecture material and approximately 5-15 additional practice questions per video. Each video is 5-15 minutes long. You may need a few hours to complete the practice questions, especially for the courses that include financial modeling. You may purchase solutions to all the questions that include creating a financial model separately, in case you are unable to complete them on your own.

Each course is available on a monthly subscription basis.
What if I am unhappy with the course?
Unfortunately, we cannot provide refunds, because when you sign up, you gain access to the class materials and can download them. I recommend watching the FREE introduction video and reading the testimonials and the course agenda before signing up to help ensure that each particular course is useful to you.
