The model is helpful for showing what you will do with the capital, how long your runway is and then you overlay the milestones you want to hit on that runway. Investors want to make sure you have plenty of time to hit the milestones.

Often I see Founders learning a ton about their own business and the way the economics need to work when they build their first model, or we build it with them. It’s a great learning tool.
