About this Course Series

You need to know whether your business, technology or promising idea is financially viable, but you don't have a financial background.

Get it wrong, and you'll waste your money and your most precious resource: your time. If you let someone else model it for you, you have no way to assess the quality or veracity.

This course series rapidly takes you from zero to proficient in building and using your own financial models to help you make better decisions.

By the end, you will have a working financial model for your own business, technology, product, service or invention.

What will I gain? What will I be able to do?
