Teaching Students, passionate Educators can teach what truly matters for Entrepreneurs.

The Lean Startup movement has revolutionized Entrepreneurship lectures given by professors, trainers or mentors on how we create products and companies. However, when students want to model the diverse revenue and cost streams as well as the relationship to get, keep and grow customers, there is a lack of support. They all find themselves in creating an Excel model from scratch. 

The Lean-Case Business Case Portal enables all types of educators to introduce an efficient financial modeling service as part of their Entrepreneurship class.  Instead of re-inventing the obvious in Excel. students can actually tap into a growing library of models, templates and benchmarks for standard business models which come with standard metrics, explanations and benchmarks. Educators can actually spend valuable time with their students on what truly matters while boost their qualification in financial modeling and simulation. Being able to draw conclusions for each students and across all their classes, allows them to gain valuable insights and case studies.
