Finance Bootcamp – Thursday 26th September

The Business Finance Bootcamp is designed to help you start a business, keep it going and continue to grow it.

Finances are often the last thing business owners consider, but making money is the fundamental reason most people go into business.

Digital technology has revolutionised the way we manage accounts, and with the government now making tax digital, keeping digital records is a legal requirement.

Many people will understand that in the beginning you are likely to be spending more that you make, so how do you get started.

In this session, we will demystify the terminology around funding, to answer questions  such as:

  • What are the implications of borrowing from family and friends?
  • What does an Angel investor look for?
  • How does the government support startups?
  • What does the bank look for when approving loans?

This one-day Bootcamp will help you to stay organised, legal and compliant, and you may even enjoy making the numbers work.

The Business Finance Bootcamp includes the following modules:

  • We will look at start-up costs and funding, including the many different options for raising funds – with example of how others have done it before.
  • What is profit, and how to develop a Profit & Loss (P&L) forecast
  • How Digital Technology has changed the way we run accounts
  • The many different digital apps and how they help, including expenses, accounting, bookkeeping and payroll
  • How to reduce turnover in staff by developing a positive and nurturing culture.
