Let’s set the stage. You think you have a winning innovation. Your early-stage customer discovery has validated a market fit, and you’ve confirmed a measurable economic benefit for a defined set of customers. You’re eager to build out a minimum viable product. It may already be underway.
But now you need to properly gauge your financial prospects and profit potential. Do you really understand the best “Money Model” for your venture? And, have you expressed it clearly using a 5-year, forward-looking pro forma? Do your fundamentals appear viable? And do you know how to present them to investors?
In this Masterclass, Chris Stairs from Volition Advisors will teach you a systematic approach that will help you to begin designing your Minimum Viable Financial Plan:
● Understand the importance of defining your “Unit Economics.”
● Clearly illustrate your path to a “Repeatable” sales opportunity.
● Learn the essential milestones of early-stage growth.
● Set precise goals so you can reverse-engineer the cash requirements to get there.
Join us to learn how you get it done, and make money.
