Business Focus

Trying to understand Excel Models to evaluate a business opportunity if frustrating. Lean-Case provides right platform to evaluate opportunities focusing the discussion on business assumptions and learnings. Now we can really focus on what matters, growing the business!

Outperforming other tools

As a serial entrepreneur, I tried different business planning software before. Lean-Case has really impressed me with its complex business models that are fully customizable. I am able to create solid plans, with a level of detail that I could not access before, with the other tools available on the market.

Transparency creating trust

I never felt so close to my teams and in control of my investment portfolio. Lean-Case offers great projection features and allows a level of interactivity that we all appreciate. This kind of transparency between startups and us, investors, is something we all needed. It creates trust and is greatly appreciated.

Metrics which Matter

We were introduced to Lean-Case through our accelerator and we loved it right from the start. We are typical "Excel Modelers", but this amazing software got us understand what metrics matter for the business and the investors, how to plan the right way and how to get a flawless pitch.

Having all the cases of our startups in one place and being able to adjust them dynamically has been a tremendous help for us. Lean-Case is really the only software were we were able to model very specific business cases, in great detail, and that made all the difference.

In our incubator, we get to work with fantastic people with brilliant ideas, but little business experience. Lean-Case has offered us the means to help them understand what matters in their plans and what investors really want to see, and that makes all the difference.

Loved by Corporate Investors

With Lean-Case, we created a revenue focused, transparent and logical financial plan for our follow up round. Highly professional, super efficient and loved by our corporate investors.

Lean-Case sets a Standard

Lean-Case should be the Standard for every VC! We've been able to raise our initial round of $36m for Newstore working with the Lean-Case Team. The approach is focused on the customer lifecycle which is the key driver for revenue planning. Logical but very hard to do in spreadsheets.

More Funding

Our job, as an accelerator has become much easier since we are using Lean-Case. We got on the same page with our startups, our plans and pitches look better than ever before and we see real results in getting more funding.

For any startup portfolio

Really enjoyed working with Lean-Case and our latest cohort. A very useful set of tools to help build robust and defensible financial models. Highly recommended for any startup portfolio!

Investor Trust

Ask any startup founder and they will tell you that the hardest part in succeeding is not getting funding for a great idea. I don’t think we would have managed to get our investors trust us without the solid business plan we’ve built with the help of Lean-Case.
