Startup Perk: Financial Forecasting With the Blackpointe Company
If you’re an entrepreneur, juggling multiple tasks is just the beginning. You’ve also got to wear an ensemble of hats while maneuvering a few side-hustles along the way. Not to mention that full-time job as a circus performer. No wonder developing a complete financial forecast for your new venture is a challenge.
Enter a new perk for rural startups in Colorado: The Blackpointe Company’s Startup Financial Forecasting Model. We’re partnering with this Denver-based financial services company to provide discounted access to a comprehensive forecasting tool just for startups.
We were recently introduced to The Blackpointe Company by founder James Masias, a finance executive who has worked in investment banking, startups, tech, and K-12. The forecasting model allows startups to develop financial statements that can be used for business planning, meeting with bankers, investors and pretty much any organization that you may be working with to secure funding.
We like it because it eliminates the assumption that everyone is destined to become a unicorn, and therefore creates realistic goals for your investors. The model utilizes the familiar workspace of Microsoft Excel, and after plugging in the initial information with a Blackpointe consultant, you can continue to tinker with it as your business evolves.
In partnership with Startup Colorado, the Blackpointe Company is offering a discounted rate of $299 for the model plus 1-2 hours of consulting with James Masias.
