The financial aspect of running a business can be complex and time-consuming, particularly for founders and business owners without a finance background.

Jessica will cover:

  • Fundamentals to master; including financial hygiene, KPIs, and budgeting
  • Specific, actionable steps you can take to strengthen your business
  • How do you know when to make your first full time dedicated finance hire?
  • How do bootstrapped company finances differ [from VC-backed companies]
  • What’s the right way for a founder to put personal money into the business?
  • When to & why to use accrual accounting
  • And any question you'd like to ask her!
