One of the biggest stumbling blocks for founders is getting a handle on our numbers. We don’t need to become accounting experts—but we do need to learn how to create, update, and present our financials. Founders who know their numbers impress investors. They also build better businesses more quickly, as we’ve seen again and again. This session provides easy-to-implement suggestions and practical advice.
