Training Finance for Startups. Come and see us March 8th EPFL

Don’t let your fear of finance get in the way of your success. Can you prepare a cashflow statement? Do you know the difference between an income statement and a balance sheet? Or understand why a business that’s profitable can still go belly-up?

This training Finance for Startups Basics is designed for founders, chiefs and developers that want to understand the basic principles of Finance and the obligations that the Swiss Law requires. Startups face financial issues that are specific to their industry. For example there is the Swiss Code of Obligations art 725 that deals with over-indebtedness, capitalisation or expensing of costs to build your prototype, shareholder issues, fundraising and cashflow problems. The decisions taken can have severe tax consequences.

Your trainer will be Jeroen van den Oever, a senior CPA with more than 20 years of experience in the field. He also has hands-on experience with startups as he has successfully founded and exited two startups.

This full day training course will help you:
(1) Learn the language of finance,
(2) Why startups fail, risks to be avoided,
(3) Experience what growth does to your financials,
(4) Assess your vulnerability to typical startup problems,

(6) Invest smartly through cost/benefit analysis.
