Financial Modeling Showdown

Finance is a difficult topic to grasp for many. It is even harder to master if you are a startup company. When asked to develop financial projections in a group project or a business pitch, results are often unrealistic and totally fake. Today we’ll play a game, learn some financial terms and provide you with a financial projection simulator that may help you in future projects requiring projected finances.
