Finance for Founders Masterclass

Financial and administrative processes may be perceived by you as a founder as a nuisance and not adding value. Nevertheless, the value of financial and operational data in your own company for successful corporate management must never be underestimated. Finance is no longer a necessary evil, but a central driver for data-based and fast entrepreneurial decisions and for successful discussions and processes with (potential) investors.

In this course, we as founders train founders terms of the general start-up process and compliance. From a practical point of view, we teach you how to automate processes and provide real-time data that enables informed decisions at low cost and thus becomes a competitive advantage in the long run. In the Business Planning and Venture Capital module, we enable you to create business plans and understand the venture capital market, including the valuation of start-ups.
