Hey Hunters! I’m the CEO and Co-Founder of Poindexter. We built this product because we believe you shouldn't have to be an MBA to plan and manage your business finances with confidence. Poindexter is 10x faster than modeling in spreadsheets, and you don’t have to worry about making mistakes creating any equations. Our goal was to build a simple plug-and-play platform that any modern entrepreneur could use to quickly generate insights about their planned activities. Just input a few assumptions and Poindexter automatically generates a performance dashboard and full financial statements. We’re very excited to hear what you all have to say (good, bad or ugly), and we’ll be answering any questions as quickly as possible. If you end up liking what we’ve built, please feel free to share it with your friends and colleagues as we’ve bootstrapped it this far, and I really don’t want to have to sell my car ;)

@spmccoy88 Hey, thanks Sean! I've worked with a number of startups, and the process of creating financial projections was always a pain, so we built an easier way.

This would have helped 6 years ago for sure. Excel is a time suck at first.

I’ll be honest, this isn’t my first time trying to start a business. Last time I tried learning how to create financial projections for my home health care business it took me six months to figure out how to organize, categorize, and put together the formulas necessary to present a very, very, humble looking projection. This application allowed me to do all of that and more in under FOUR HOURS!! In four hours, I had an Income Statement, Customer Acquisition channels, and Yearly Performance projections, half of which I didn’t even know about until I started entering costs and revenue projections (it was pretty easy to learn as you went along). If you’re serious about starting a business and throwing together costs and expected revenue to see if you’ve got a shot at succeeding without needing to spend a year mastering the art of Excel-fu, you NEED to use Poindexter. It will save you tons of time and headache!
