What others are saying:


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

Lean-Case should be the Standard for every VC!

I never felt so close to my teams and in control of my investment portfolio. Lean-Case offers great tracking and 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 and greatly appreciate.

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.

As a venture capitalist, I get to evaluate tens of investment opportunities every day. By using Lean-Case I feel that I added more weight to this evaluation process and made good decisions. It is a really powerful tool I recommend to all investors.

Private equity investment is far more challenging than people would think. Often times decisions are made based on intuition and experience, which is subjective and often proves wrong. Lean-Case offers an objective way to evaluate decisions and helps me mitigate risks and take the right decisions.

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.

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.

Angel investors are used to the hard reality that most of the businesses they will invest in will fail. Well, I got that huge percentage of failing businesses that I invest in much lower since I use Lean-Case. It really shifted my evaluation process and I can see the results.

This platform is amazing because it brings me and the founders on the same page. It allows full transparency and that’s something I missed before and often causes too much tension between founders and angel investors. Now we can really focus on what matters, growing the business!

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.

Our Lean-Case project was to the point - we created a transparent and sound financial plan for our follow up round. High quality, super efficient and loved by our investors

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.

What I love the most about Lean-Case is that I can easily simulate all kind of new models for my companies and discuss them with the founders. Also being able to track progress against plan in such an easy manner helps us not to deviate too much from our initial planning.
