We work with startups on daily basis within our accelerator StartupAkademia and we have noticed that despite tones of very good books on lean methods (i.e. Lean Analytics, Running Lean etc.) startups as well as small / medium businesses have problems with applying this knowledge in practice. We have noticed that, especially first time startups, do not really understand their business model (which is totally understandable). That's why, it is very difficult for them to know what they should concentrate on. Most entrepreneurs / startups have more or less clear business idea but quite often they do not know the business models they can chose and end up learning it the hard way, through their mistakes. Some of them have read the Lean analytics, Lean Starup or Running Lean but even then they do not know exactly how to translate it into coherent Excel model. A business model in the form of Excel is very important for evaluating your business, seeing how much cash you need and how your hypothesis and KPIs are translating into the business
Therefore we build a course on Udemy: https://www.udemy.com/on-line-business-models-in-excel-practical-guide/
The presentation you will find here is just a fraction of what you can find in the course
What will this course give you?
The course is a practical, step by step guide loaded with tones of tips and tools that will help you significantly speed up with your business, especially if you are a startup or a small / medium business. There is little theory – mainly examples, a lot of tips from our own experience as well as other notable examples worth mentioning. Our intention is that thanks to the course you will know:
- What your business model is about, what to concentrate on and what are the key KPIs for you?
- How you can translate it into Excel and evaluate your business?
- How to make conclusions on the basis of your business model presented in the form of Excel
