How can you secure funding from investors? – Winning investors requires a great investment proposal!
In the last decades, financial modeling has become the professional standard to demonstrate the financial feasibility of a proposed investment. A good investment proposal is prepared as Excel spreadsheets and details all the planned revenues, costs and capital investment required. The model is only as good as the assumptions and the argumentation used to back them up. Especially investors will scrutinize and question each and every assumption, therefore it is important to present them with a very solid analysis.
A second aspect is the calculation of all investor relevant metrics, especially their profit and return on investment. The focus of any investor will be their expected profit and internal rate of return calculation when adding up all expected cash-ins and -outs. So any good investment proposal template will have to demonstrate very clearly the expected investor cash flows.
Today, not only financial analysists have to use such models but also more and more entrepreneurs who need to show their investors how they see their projects to work out in financial terms. Funding is a competitive game and the only way to win it is by doing your homework. Therefore many entrepreneurs have sophisticated Excel spreadsheets ready to demonstrate that they have a clear plan in place how the investment should work out. Now they can either develop such plan themselves, which is quite time-consuming or rely on a good financial model spreadsheet which makes it easier to present an investment proposal.
