As you may know, I am a long time attendee and supporter of Morning Startup, but recently with the extra workload of running //Startup News I have found it quite a bit harder getting out of bed on time, especially with winter weather settling in.
But this week I was extra motivated because I heard the presentation was going to be about beautiful models!
So I managed to drag my butt out of bed, brave the train and arrive only half an hour late.
Where’s the models?

This is how Jeff described his presentation.
So you have a great project you’re working on that’s going to change the world … but how do you get investors to understand your story? There are 3 things you need:
1. A professional Information Memorandum to tell your story in detail and show you’ve thought everything through.
2. A great pitch slidedeck that summarises everything and supports your thoughts when you’re speaking to potential investors
3. A beautiful financial model that tells your story in numbers that a potential investor can use to make a decision.
In this presentation, we’ll focus on some things to consider when you’re putting a financial model together. What are the things a potential investor will focus on, how do you allow for all the uncertainty in a new startup, and how do you build a financial model that allows you the flexibility to change things when your business model inevitably changes (many times!).
A big thanks to Jeff Robson from Access Analytic for the presentation this morning. And thanks to Isaak from Morning Startup (http://www.meetup.com/Morning-Startup-Perth/).
