Back to Basics: Financial Fundamentals
When it comes to startups, SVB has seen the good, the bad, and the ugly. Here's the deal - it's all about the numbers. Many entrepreneurs bite of more than they can chew with sophisticated business models. Others drown in vanity metrics.
In this class, SVB will take you back to basics, covering the fundamental metrics and financial accounting principles that will make or break your startup. This class will cover cash flow statements, balance sheets, and key financial terms you’ll need to know to be conversant about your business.
In follow up to Financial Fundamentals, Intelligent.ly will encourage attendees and the broader community to apply for a 1:1 session with an SVB team member to assess their startup’s key performance indicators.
