Advising the Startup: Finance and Accounting 101

Finance and Accounting 101

The backbone of any business, startup or otherwise, is strong finance and accounting. However, unlike more established businesses, startup employees often wear multiple hats. Even in the early days, where creativity clashes may prove common, the need to designate a responsible person and to develop a working finance and accounting system is paramount. Investors require detailed reports; vendors and employees require payment; and accounts receivable must be managed with great particularity. Whether this function is satisfied by one or several individuals within a startup, building the foundation for a business that will endure the challenges of growth requires that the company invest time and energy into its finance and accounting functions. This webinar provides the entrepreneur and his or her advisors with an overview of finance and accounting for startups, and practical tips for getting started.
