Financial Modelling and Business Strategy Workshop

April 15, 2019 @ 6:30 pm - April 18, 2019 @ 9:30 pm

Financial Modelling and Business Strategy Workshop

In order to successfully scale, most new ventures will need to seek outside funding from venture capitalists or angel investors.  Raising money to fund a new venture involves entrepreneurs and investors in a challenging and critical process.  Investors will evaluate startups on two dimensions:  product/market fit and financial potential.  Therefore it is critical for entrepreneurs to know how to: 1)  develop a business strategy that optimizes product/market fit and 2) build a financial model that demonstrates the financial potential of the company.

Some of the specific skills developed in this workshop will include:

  • How to identify and evaluate new business opportunities
  • Market identification, sizing, trends and analysis
  • Development and assessment of competitive and business strategies for companies in different areas (biotech, IT and engineering)
  • Building financial models for new ventures
  • Financial forecasting and valuation for start-ups
  • Methods of structuring start-ups (holding company/subsidiary) and corresponding investment/exit strategies for founders/investors
  • Sources of & mechanisms for financing startups (e.g. convertible loans, equity investment and share swap) & their pros and cons
  • Different fundraising options, their pros and cons, strategies for different options
  • Factors that will affect investors’ decision-making when evaluating financial plans and investments
  • Strategies for negotiating funding deals
