The Gutenberg ResearchTM Contributor Program
Join our financial modeling community and start contributing today
What is Gutenberg Research?
We are an interactive earnings modeling community which provides professional analysis based on modern portfolio theory and fundamental valuation techniques. Our mission is to make Earnings & Valuation Models, similar to those provided by investment banks, available to all investors for free.
What Does Gutenberg Do?
We build and maintain Excel-based Earnings & Valuation Models which are calibrated to meet consensus estimates, for a wide variety of U.S. listed companies. These consensus models represent a "base case" scenario which our users can download and plug in their own assumptions to instantly see the impact on future earnings. Our models are particularly useful to run sensitivity analysis ahead of quarterly earnings results, and to analyze results after the release. We are in the process of ramping our inventory of models, with the help of our Financial Modeling Interns.
How Does the Contributor Program Work?
After you submit your initial application using the form to the right, a member of our team will send you a welcome email and grant you access to our Contributor training material which will teach you exactly how to make adjustments to our models.
You will then be able to download any of our earnings models, plug in your own assumptions in the blue cells, or make any other changes and re-post the model with a few comments describing your model (or full article/video if you prefer) to our website for your followers to download.
What’s in it for Me?
There are many benefits for our contributors including:
1) Exposure: We will allow you to link back to your own website or any other site you are associated with, on your contributor page, and all blog posts or articles you write.
2) Advertise for Future Employers: You may choose to use our website to demonstrate your financial modeling skills, and get your work published so you can showoff your abilities to future employers.
3) Gain New Clients: Demonstrating your understanding of specific companies may help you gain new client leads.
4) Free Modeling Training: All the content on our website is free including our training material.
In addition, if we monetize our website, we will establish a commission-based program for our contributors, where you will be eligible to receive payments on a per-page view and/or per-download basis for future contributions, similar to other contributor websites.
The contributors who start early in our website's development will have the chance to develop a strong user following, which will likely result in more page views and downloads later on.
Fill out the form to the right to sign-up. We will create a contributor page for you to showcase your work, and give you access to a page which will keep track of your page views and model download statistics. If you have questions about the program, you will have access to our weekly phone meetings.
