Startup Financial Model Templates

Financial Model Templates, balance sheet example

We created a template that covers everything discussed in our how-to post. Filled with sample data for an imaginary startup so you can take the time to understand how cash flows through the business and eventually translates into progress towards milestones. 

This template is an over-simplification designed to drive home the point that cash is the lifeblood of your startup. Fill it with your own information and add what you need so you can get a clear picture of what’s driving your business.
