As CompassionWorx was preparing for an initial round of outside funding, I was hired to create a new financial model for them that incorporated variable inputs and a variety of revenue models. Basically, a decision-making tool that they could use on an ongoing basis. By incorporating "what-if?" analysis into the model, I gave the CEO instant and simple feedback on operational or financial changes to the business plan. My ability to design financial models that provide insight into strategic decision-making and operational planning can make a world of difference for start-ups, saving both time and money.
