Get Up to 90% Off! The Financial Modeling for Startups and Small Businesses course offered by Udemy is all about financial modeling for startup businesses so it's more geared towards entrepreneurs or small business owners who want to better understand the key drivers of a new or growing business.


The Financial Modeling for Startups and Small Businesses course offered by Udemy isn't an Excel or Finance course, although you will learn a bit of both.  We focus more on the rationale and the logic of modeling specifically for startups or growing businesses, so you can take what you learn to other spreadsheet tools.  

But it will take practice.  You won't get better just watching the videos.  That's why have lots of practice exercises and sample models for you to learn from.

Reasons why you should create a financial model for your startup or small business.  A good financial model can help you:

  • Test your assumptions and verify key drivers of your business
  • Compare and contrast different business choices, like pricing models
  • Calculate the ACTUAL amount of capital you need to startup
  • Calculate your burn rate
  • Model out your user growth 
  • Model out your expenses
  • Be more prepared talking to potential investors
  • And loads more.

  • Model user growth
  • Model revenue
  • Model expenses
  • Model attrition
