Capstone – Project

Modeling a Fast-Growing Business Over a 3-5 Year Period

A Collaboration Between

Engagement Synopsis

SwipeSense is expanding its product lines, and needs help building robust financial forecasts based on sales expectations. These forecasts will be used for cash runway management, investor relations, internal benchmarks, and lending applications. Students will work with the VP of Finance to learn the intricacies of the business, review the current way we forecast, and propose improvements to the system. Students who enroll in this course will:
  • Learn about the operating and financial planning required to run a high growth venture-backed business in the Health Tech space
  • Understand how the company deals with ambiguity in future variables and modeling scenarios that encompass severable moving pieces.
  • This is a financial modeling exercise, so students should have a basic understanding of financial accounting and be familiar with an Income Statement, Balance Sheet, and Statement of Cash Flows.┬á
  • This is a SaaS business, so it is important they are familiar with the concept of deferred revenue and revenue recognition.┬á
  • There is also a hardware component to the business, which adds a big layer of complexity that normal software businesses donÔÇÖt have, which is why Supply Chain is a preferred concentration below.┬á
  • MBA Concentrations preferred: Finance, Accounting, Supply Chain
  • The current model is in Excel, so a basic knowledge here would be needed, with at least 1-2 students in the group having more advanced knowledge.┬á┬á
PLEASE NOTE: Participants will be required to sign a non-disclosure project agreement regarding the handling of confidential information and intellectual property. Logistics: This ÔÇ£IntertermÔÇØ Immersion will be based in Chicago, Illinois. Students will need to secure transportation and lodging on their own. Additional details on travel can be found under ÔÇ£Travel Reimbursement DetailsÔÇØ at the front of this document.
