Testimonials

Alexander Hjertström, CEO of Airinum "Budgeting and keeping track of your cashflow is crucial for any startup. Yet, due to its complexity and requited time investment, these efforts are often haphazardly done, or even skipped. When Airinum discovered Brinc's cashflow model, we didn’t have to waste time and build a model from scratch. It was plug-and-play with the Brinc Cash Flow Tool and we were up and running in no-time."

Andrew McDonnell, CFO of Ideal Workspace "The Brinc Cash Flow Tool is the best way I’ve used to track the lifeblood of a hardware startup: what are my commitments, when is money coming in, when is money going out, when do we break-even, how much do I need to raise and when, can I hire more people, and so much more. You can add product lines to see how they affect the company, in isolation or in aggregate, project team sizes, model how payment terms affect you, and plan your manufacturing orders. It’s super helpful.”

Aaron Cooper, CEO of Lantrn “I come from finance, so at first, I was a bit skeptical of using a template financial model. But, the model is a great start point for understanding the core cash requirements early stage hardware companies need and can easily be adapted to help founders project development and go-to-market costs for specific hardware products. This is a perfect tool for any startup that wants to have complete control over their financials, without having to invest their own time and resources to reinvent the wheel.”
