‘Series A’ webinar – Getting the Funding by making your Forecast credible

February 22, 2022| 9:00 am - 10:15 pm GMT

Forecasts are always wrong – of course, they are – but their credibility or lack of it, determines often whether you will receive the Funding you want.

A well-structured Forecast with key assumptions which can be validated/benchmarked against historicals and inform key SaaS industry ratios underpins your status in the eyes of sceptical Investment professionals. Unfortunately, the reverse is true!

Learn from the experts on how to construct and populate the Models which will convince the most demanding forensic Investment Analysts that you know what the key levers driving your business are and how to scale them up.

Hear also from a senior Investment Partner about his ‘do’s and don’ts’ on this subject.

This webinar is most suitable for CEOs of high growth businesses about to embark on a ‘Series A’ round or similar.
