How to Build a Long-Term Financial Model for Your Startup, by Jim Franklin

Posted by Amity Sims on 2013-06-07

Inside FI gives you exclusive access inside the training sessions of the Founder Institute. To get updates when we release new videos, follow us on Twitter or subscribe to our weekly newsletter here.

In this talk from the Denver Founder Institute, Jim Franklin explains how to manage finances in all stages of your company. In addition to having a financial plan that matches your operating plan, Jim warns founders about the dangers of  improperly calculating costs and how taking other people’s money means giving up control.

Jim Franklin is the CEO of SendGrid - the leader in email deliverability. Jim will also be mentoring at the Denver Founder Institute - Applications are open now. 

An experienced financial advisor, Jim advises founders to avoid taking investor cash and always think about your business as a long term entity. The lifetime value of a customer is worth far more than an immediate sale.
