Best Practices and Resources for Financial Modeling

The best resources, templates, and posts about financial modeling and startups on the web.

After years of building financial models for over 18,050 people in 98 countries I have seen a lot of commonly asked questions about best practices, resources and templates. I started compiling a list of financial modeling resources on the web, and over time that list has grown. I’m constantly updating this so if I missed something let me know. Contact me.
