Startup Finance 101 with Brett Sharp

October 2, 2020 @ 11:00 am - 12:00 pm

Introduction to Entrepreneurial Finance

About this Event

As an entrepreneur, you’re running fast, lean, and likely resource-strapped. Spending time on your financials may not be your top priority, or maybe it’s a little scary for you. But, to effectively fundraise, or even begin a conversation with an investor, you’ll need to get your company’s financials in-order. A sound understanding of your financials indicates how savvy you are as an entrepreneur, and how well you understand and operate your business. Need help with the basic components of financials? We have you covered.

This event is to provide non-financial startup leaders with key financial concepts, terminology, and tools in order to help facilitate scalable and capital-efficient business growth.

Join us for our Startup Finance 101 with Brett Sharp, teaching you the basics of entrepreneurial finance.
