I created the financial models behind Foresight so early-stage entrepreneurs can spend less time on finance and more time on their products. I built this tool to help entrepreneurs understand the mechanics behind forecasting a SaaS business, and to be able to compare how the different types of SaaS businesses mechanically work, in a package that is easy to use, easy to edit, and easy to understand. I’ve been building and helping entrepreneurs build financial models for startups since 1998. More about my story here.
