Event description


Create your customized analytical tools to build a powerful cash machine

About the workshop

As an entrepreneur or a project developer, estimating and anticipating sales and costs are directly linked to the development and survival of your project / company. In this hands-on workshop you will learn to make numerical projections to build a coherent business model. This model will allow you to accurately predict your cost variations, sales, hiring new employees, but also to play with several scenarios...

Our goal is to share our knowledge of entrepreneurship with you. We provide the best management tools to help you grow and become successful.

This workshop is designed to provide not only financial management tools but also mechanisms that will help each entrepreneur or project proponent to anticipate future decisions at every major stage of his / her project.

At the end of this practical workshop, you will be able to:

- Use your own calculator that allows you to play with all scenarios wherever you are in your project or business

- Know if your business/project is viable or not

- Create a preliminary budget to boost the profitability of your company

- Model the tools that will help you make better decisions on a daily basis

- Know the important indicators that will help you decide whether or not to launch your project

These solid tools will allow you to make your decisions with confidence and deliver the objective measurements of your activities.

- List your projected and actual revenue sources

- Bring your computer with a version of MS Excel
