Your Startup’s Day One:

Develop the right product idea, while managing your cash wisely.

Hi, I’m Alexandre Azevedo.
I help early-stage startup founders to develop valuable products for their customers, while preserving their startup’s cash.

FREE Early-Stage Cash Plan

One-page, easy-to-use Excel model that covers your startup's funding needs, cash runway, cash burn rate, cycle's metrics and more.

Based on the Lean Startup Methodology, this Excel model allows you to generate a cash plan for your early-stage startup, considering your validation and non-validation costs.

Hey, There! Alex Here...

How serious are you about turning your startup idea into a massive success?

Oh, wait… Just show me how you manage your cash, and I’ll know the answer.

If you didn’t invest much time in building your startup’s “cash wisdom”, it’s hard to believe that it will happen. 

Why?! Because without an understanding about how you’ll use the cash you have, it’s very likely you’ll:

  • Burn it on the wrong things (that won’t help you in validating your hypothesis)
  • Not invest it on the right things (your validation will be stuck) 
  • Raise more money than you need (and deliver more ownership than you should)
  • Raise less money than you need (and end up with no money in your bank account)
  • Spend more than you should (and waste your startup’s resources)

To get to the traction stage, you must be diligent about your cash from day one.

But, I know what you might be thinking: “Arghhh… do I really need to dive deep into the finance world and invest many hours to build all those financial reports? 

Nope. You don’t need to freak out about all those things, right now. 

But, you must have a great understanding about your startup’s cash, how to allocate it, and how to attach your execution to it.

Once you are 100% confident about how to manage your pre-traction startup’s cash, you’ll boost your chances to validate your hypothesis and to start generating traction.

Are you ready?
