Adam did a fantastic job helping my company formulate financial projections. We're going to raise money for our seed round, so the model lays everything out clearly, and we feel confident to pitch investors at this point in time. Not only is the model excellent, but the customer service that Adam and his company have provided is also top-notch. Very quick response times, and even gives live video reviews to major questions that you have. The process of working together side by side to build such an important document has been very pleasant and I look forward to working with Projection Hub as our company grows.
