Forecasting services

Strategic forecasting that stands up to investor scrutiny. We'll identify key commercial drivers and assumptions in your business to develop a three-way integrated P&L, balance sheet and cash flow forecasting model.

Forecasting: understanding the fundamentals

A long-term, robust forecasting model gives you the insight needed to assess, run and scale your business and understand your key strategic drivers and commercial value. It also helps you get the funding you need to accelerate growth.

We challenge and help founders critically appraise their finance function and create a long-term, working forecasting model that identifies opportunities and gaps across the business. We also equip them with an investor-focused model, including a P&L, balance sheet, cash flow, and cohort and other commercial assumptions, along with the right sector KPIs and metrics investors want to see.

Are you:

  • Missing the right KPIs and metrics for your sector and struggling to convince investors your forecasts stand up?
  • Getting your P&L, balance sheet and cash flow mixed up?
  • Wanting to scale your business and get ready for fundraising?
  • Lacking accurate data on cohorts, recurring revenue (ARR/MRR), customer lifetime value (LTV) or customer acquisition costs (CAC)?

Investor-ready forecasting

Creating a robust forecasting model helps you improve cash flow planning (including cash burn and cash runway) and understand the projected financial performance of your business. Capturing insightful data in this way reduces the time spent on number crunching and frees up your time to spend on value-added activities instead.

We build a three-way integrated financial model that includes a month-by-month view, five-year outlook and historical outputs to give you the insights needed to achieve your KPIs. We'll stress test how everything's running in your business against assumptions, then working with the model we develop, we'll update assumptions and continue to test and challenge – what you have is insight and answers.
