Models built for any type of business

The base financial model templates are built to help an entrepreneur create financial projections for any type of business. The models provide an increasing amount of prebuilt detail and structure, from the least - the free Runway and Cash Budget tool - to the most - the Standard Model. Optionally, you can extend the detail and functionality of the Standard model by adding on a module, or by building in your own growth and revenue model. The Modules provide prebuilt, easy-to-use upgrade paths if you want to add more detail: start with the Standard, and if you determine at a later stage that you want or need more detail, upgrade to a module with a simple upgrade process that does not require you to rebuild your model.

Taylor Davidson
Founder, Foresight

I created the financial models behind Foresight so early-stage entrepreneurs can spend less time on finance and more time on their products.

  • Started building models for startups in 2000
  • Started Foresight in 2008, full-time since 2014
  • Former NYC-based venture capital investor
  • Experience in ecommerce growth and analytics
  • Former private equity analyst, strategy consulting associate
  • MBA in Finance and Accounting

I care about financial modeling because I believe that financial models can help us make critical business decisions even if the models themselves are not “always right”. Financial models can help even the earliest entrepreneurs if we build “minimum viable models” to focus on the decisions that matter most.

Growth forecasting

In this new lesson at The Fitzroy Academy, you’ll learn how to think through the financial building blocks of your product and create a month-by-month growth forecast.

Standards you can build on.

Your business is unique. It needs a forecast that can adapt to it.

  • Open templates - no locked cells, no locked formulas - created for you modify, maintain, and use. Use the tools you are used to - Microsoft Excel™, Google Sheets™ - and all the data tools already built for those platforms.
  • Five year or three year forecasts of key operations and - in most models - three statement consolidated financial statements.
  • Start from scratch or bring your own historical financial data - Quickbooks, Xero, Freshbooks, et. al. into the model. The base template supplies you with the standards for your type of business, and if needed, you can make the edits to make your model as unique as your business.
  • Tested and used by 21,700 entrepreneurs and investors from a wide spectrum of business types, stages, countries, and experience levels.

Already have a model? Perfect.

Use your existing model and leverage the Standard Model for financial statements and standardized reporting.

  • Bring Your Own Model is a functionality that turns the Standard Model into a modular model, allowing you to easily bring or build your own revenue forecasts in with a minimum of integration effort.
  • Instead of rebuilding your revenue model, simply replace the default revenue model with your own model and integrate in minutes through the Modelhooks to use the Standard Model for your operating costs, financial statements, summaries, and key reporting.

Your CFO before you need a CFO.

Before you need a CFO, start with Foresight.

The models use a standards-based, flexible, and robust structure built to help entrepreneurs create operational forecasts and financial projections without needing senior level financial staff - not yet, at least.

I’m available to assist, from email support to full model building. I specialize in making the complicated easy; I’ve done over 175 projects over the past 3 years with companies across the world.

I work on a project basis: no need for recurring contracts or bills.

I don’t replace CFOs or senior financial professionals - I help you get to the stage when you can bring them on.

For experienced financial professionals, happy to chat if you need help with complex financial modeling or spreadsheet data analysis on a project basis. Details here ›
