David King, serial CFO, will walk founders through a solid, user-friendly, financial projection workbook that they can use to create a defensible financial model. Starting with a discussion on the key areas in modeling, to inputting the key assumptions into a free sample template, this workshop will allow you to have more confidence in telling your story with numbers! Build a fierce financial projection model that is accessible, practical, and comprehensive. Participants will be able to take the workbook with them and use as the foundation for their financial planning.

Entrepreneurs need tools that help them stay focused on their customers and ignite investors. That’s why the ActivateNM community has chosen a new platform to help its members, LEANSTACK. LEANSTACK provides world-class tools, courses, and training that help early-stage entrepreneurs find repeatable and scalable business models.

In this 2nd Get to Market Faster workshop introducing LEANSTACK, participants will focus on the LEANSTACK Traction Model. Instead of spending countless hours on a financial forecast spreadsheet, learn how the Traction Model can help you take a few inputs and turn them into an actionable model that is easy to communicate and easy to test.


LEANSTACK is a continuous innovation platform that helps companies systematically uncover and build what customers want. The platform begins with the Lean Canvas. Lean Canvas is a 1-page business plan template created by Ash Maurya that helps you deconstruct your idea into its key assumptions. It is adapted from Alex Osterwalder’s Business Model Canvas and optimized for Lean Startups. It replaces elaborate business plans with a single page business model.
