“Panthera helped us tremendously getting on the right track for fundraising. The financial model Mike helped us to create was absolutely first-rate and we received a lot of positive feedback from investors about the detailed yet flexible modeling approach. The deck that Alejandro helped us to craft was concise and impactful and a number of VCs said it was one of the top decks they’ve ever seen.“
