Wed Night! Martin Zych Talks Financial Modeling - CEO Series
Join us for some high-level financial modeling. Martin Zych, Director of Finance at Limeade, has agreed to help us with one of the most critical skills for any early stage startup founder. Martin has worked with dozens of companies' models and budgets, and recently helped Limeade close a $5.5M funding round.
This will be a hands on lecture, laptops invited, to learn the goals of financial modeling and some intermediate excel functions and concepts on the fly from a financial modeling pro. We'll build a basic SaaS revenue model live, along with learning many of the core SaaS metrics you need to know and investors want to see.
Mar 6: Social Selling with Aseem Badhsah, CEO of Socedo - CEO Series
Getting your first 100 customers is the hardest job that any startup has (and if that is not hard, you are on to something HUGE). But, if you do not already know who your first 100 customers are going to be, where can you find them?
Aseem Badshah, CEO of Socedo, will help you start formulating your strategy to answer this fundamental business question. In short, the answer is that for many businesses, these people are already congregating somewhere, whether on Twitter, LinkedIn, a blog, or some other channel. Your goal is to figure out what you can do to connect with and qualify these customers in a low-touch way that is efficient for you and for them.
