The starting point of every successful business.
“How much money will we bring in this year?” “Can we afford this next hire?” “How much money do we need to raise?” “Are we getting return on our marketing spend?” These are the difficult questions founders face daily as a company continues to grow. And making the right decisions is imperative for your business’ success. At Ralston, we create solid financial models that allow you to manage your resources and track performance so you can make better decisions faster. With confidence.
A financial model is the most important tool a business can have. And it applies to every single business.”
Our Proven Approach to Financial Modeling
We start by asking, “What do you want to accomplish with your business?” From there, we work with you to better clarify your company goals, and we create a financial model to keep you on course. This becomes your roadmap toward knowing exactly what you need to do month after month, year after year, in order to meet or exceed your goals.
Next, we look at the drivers of your business – number of customers, price points, marketing, etc. Then we create financial reports as a result of those drivers. This is the absolute best way to accurately view your past expenses and make smart financial decisions for the future.
Constant evaluation and updating of your financial model is necessary for long-term success. But it can also take up a massive amount of your time. As a business owner, you’ve got other matters you need to focus on. So we do that for you.
The highest priorities in scaling are cash and hiring. We give you the confidence to pull the trigger.
The hardest part about scaling a business is hiring. As a business owner, you can’t hesitate to make decisions, because you risk losing momentum. Especially when it comes to building a team. Our financial modeling services provide you the forecasting needed to make important decisions without hesitation. So you have the confidence to keep investing in the growth of your company, while also being efficient with your capital.
Trial-and-error is costing you time and money. We take out the guesswork.
If you want to grow your business, you need to know for certain that you’re getting a return on your expenses. You need to be able to accurately track your performance. You need to know what you can and shouldn’t do. Thankfully, our financial models let you know all of this beforehand. Before you spend the dollars. And before you spend the time.
Investors want transparency. We provide financial models that give them the confidence to invest.
Having helped a number of startups and scale-ups secure fundraising, we know exactly what investors are looking for. And it all starts with a solid financial model. In the eyes of the investor, this is who you are as a business. It’s what determines why they should give you money. So it’s important you present yourself in the best way possible. At Ralston, we create financial models that clearly present your financial strategy – how their funds will be allocated and how it translates into growth – giving them the confidence they need to invest in the future of your business.
Our Financial Models Allow You to:
- Accurately forecast your funds
- Create budgets
- Track performance
- Outline a clear hiring plan
- Validate pricing and set revenue goals
- Set clear targets for sales and marketing
- Forecast fundraising needs to help you raise money
Ralston did a great job building a model of our business. Russell and Nick were able to grasp our unusual business structure and build a model which has helped us understand our own business in a new way and make strategic decisions. The output will be instrumental to our strategy development this year."
