Fall 2016 Workshops

Startup Finance & Accounting

Other: Food will be provided. Registration is required.


This workshop will be structured as an introduction to accounting for entrepreneurs. Often entrepreneurs focus on what they consider the "mission critical" aspect of their business and don't devote attention to critical accounting and tax related matters. We'll spend time going over basic accounting and tax concepts that all entrepreneurs should understand and how this can prevent disruptive business issues in the long term.
