Video overview of the enterprise SaaS model
I downloaded the enterprise SaaS model. So far so good – I’m needing to modify a few aspects to adapt it for our business and will let you if have any further queries.
It’s an awesome tool and saved me days (probably weeks) of work trying to build my own
I’ve trolled the internet and nothing that comes close to providing the modelling granularity I was looking for in terms of logic and outputs from which to scenario plan and manage the macro financial/economic aspects of our early stage venture

Super impressed with the model. Glad we have time on for tomorrow so I can get this dialed in.
Again, the model is fantastic. Really great work.
The datageek in me is LOVING it.Melissa Koch, InFront Compliance, Inc., a Techstars backed company
If you asked me to build this model for you from scratch… I would quote you $85,000.
I’m being serious. It took me about 4 months and I charge $300 per hour.
Are you a complex Enterprise SaaS company with both enterprise and consumer/SME offerings to disparate customers?
As the CEO or CFO are you wondering how the hell you can model all this for your fundraising?
You should be concerned… because it’s hard as hell. Trust me. Sure, you might find a normal SME model, but enterprise? Forget it. I know, because I had to do it myself. Well, actually your business model is so complex, I have made models for different SaaS business models and pulled them all together to achieve this maxed out version.
I’m an ex-M&A banker and VC, and I’ve literally spent months of 100 hour weeks modelling to be able to make this model available to you. Just the enterprise revenue forecasting aspect took me a solid month. I was paid $15k to do it whilst raising a $20m round. Paying someone to make this whole model will easily cost you $50k (If you could find someone). There’s just so much involved in it.
I don’t build these models for kids, it’s for pros. There are a granular assumptions and you need to understand key details of your business (including sales cycles etc). But. You can achieve very impressive things with it!
This is the only model on the internet which can serve all your needs SaaS needs. If someone had built it before, I sure as hell would not have taken the very deep pain to do so.
The 50Folds Enterprise, consumer and SME SaaS financial model is the most comprehensive and powerful fundraising excel model available for SaaS founders. Nothing else comes close. If you are looking to impress investors with a thoughtful plan, this is it.

Details on the Enterprise SaaS model
Want this model in a different currency? Now you can!
This model uses formatted currencies in $. I often get asked if it is available in other currencies such as €? So I made an Excel PC addin to do that (It was hard!)
At the press of a button you can now convert the model into 17 different currencies. You just need to purchase the productivity addin.
Here are the currencies you can use with the macro:
|Currency list||The format you will see|
More than likely, you aren't a huge Excel nerd like me, so you probably don't know about macros? These are hacks to make modeling in Excel much more faster and less painful. I love them!
I've been making models for years, so you can be sure I know what is useful and what is not. I decided to not just make the currency conversion macro, but add in all my most used hacks. You just hit a button and it will do handy things.
What can you do?
- Automatically format your cells so they have 'investment banking' standard black, blue and green
- Change the zoom and cell position of every sheet so it looks great when others read it
- Save a backup of your model (v1, v2, v3) at the push of a button so you never get a corrupt model
- Add error checks to your formulas
- And a whole bunch of other nerdy things you'll understand when you are making models yourself!
- This is for PC. Gates hates Mac so.... All the plugins other than 'check sheet sizes' work in Mac, but I don't warrant anything if you are on Mac (Sorry). I'm trying to find a developer to rewrite the code for Mac so the images, tips etc work too
- Currency conversion only works on 50Folds models. It won't on any other model (My code looks for certain cells... There is a hack- ask if you want to know)

Benchmarking for your financial model
This is a fantastic presentation to use when forecasting in your financial model and making sure your metrics are in line with reality. Flick through the deck as you work through each section of the model and check you are trending towards these numbers. It’s perfectly ok for your numbers to look a little crazy in the early days (When you have a few customers and little revenue, no metrics/ratios will make sense). What matters is how you evolve.
