what is a financial model?

A financial model is a tool that helps you project how your organization might grow in the future. It uses your current data to create a picture of what might happen, and how you can maximize your future success. 

what is the difference between a model and a report?

While a financial model focuses on the future, a financial report focuses on the past and present. A report will help you figure out where you are at financially, and track changes over time.  Some clients need both services in order to fully understand the current state of their finances and make strategic decisions.

can i combine services?

We encourage it! Many of our services are more powerful when used in conjunction with others. Each type of service will be billed separately, unless you have negotiated a flat fee with us.

why does a finance company offer pitch decks and stakeholder summaries?

While creating powerful financial tools is important, it's also important to make sure that our clients can adequately use that information to advocate for their organization. Most graphic designers don't understand finance like we do, and won't be able to accurately represent your data visually. That's why we started offering impactful graphic design focused on communicating financial information to investors, board members, and other stakeholders.

my start up needs your services but can't afford them yet. can you still help me? 

In the past we have occasionally been able to work out payment plans or lower rates with start ups that have exceptional potential. If you believe you fall into this category, talk to us and we will see if there is something we can do.
