Event Details

The goal of the series LearnLaunch Webinar Series: Accounting for Edtech is to help edtech entrepreneurs to build and sustain their business from an accounting perspective. The aim is to help protect new entrepreneurs from possible accounting issues.
 
They are as follows: 
 
Session One: Accounting and Tax 101: Traps for the Unwary Edtech
Date: September 7, 2017
Facilitator(s): Jeffrey D. Solomon, CPA, CVA at KN+S
Location: Online
Time: 4pm - 5pm EST
Social Media - #edtech #accounting #tax  

You've decided to take the leap into the edtech startup space, and it's time to get your accounting structure in place. As you start off, it's important to define what kind of entity you want to be, what products (like Stock-it) might be able to help you - or bite you - when it comes to accounting and taxes, and understand what it means to have qualified small business stock or other stocks. If you are lost already or need a refresher on what it all means, this session is for you. 
 
During this session, participants will: 
  • Assess how your type of entity might affect your accounting and tax practices
  • Outline the types of records that are important to keep 
  • Identify ways to keep your books organized 
  • Explore important due dates and filing times 
  • Examine how important R&D is when you are figuring out the cost of developing a new product 
Session Two: Getting Your Edtech Financials and Chart of Accounts Right
Date: October 10, 2017
Facilitator(s): John Anderson, CPA, CISA, CISM, CGEIT, CITP, HUBCFO
Location: Online
Time: 4pm - 5pm EST
Social Media - #edtech #accounting #chartofaccounts   

Unless you are launching an edtech product that is focused on accounting, it's highly likely that you have something to learn about what it means to create and maintain a solid Chart of Accounts (CoA). Even as a more seasoned edtech entrepreneur, whether you are providing a product or a service - its important to make sure you are being consistent in your approach, especially if your organization is expanding or you need to know what the real financials are for a potential investment. 

In this session, participants will: 
  • Explore what assets, liabilities, revenues, and expenses - and their sub-items - should be included in a CoA 
  • Discuss the six basic types of accounts 
  • Examine what a proper balance sheet and income statement may look like 
  • outline the order items in your CoA should be placed in 
  • Identify best practices for maintaining your CoA over time 
  • Evaluate the drivers which influence your Chart of Accounts 
 
Session Three: Edtech Accounting - Dealing with Revenue Recognition Issues
Date: October 18, 2017
Facilitator(s): Cecilia Frerotte, CPA, Senior Audit Manager, Wolf & Company, P.C.
Location: Online
Time: 4pm - 5pm EST
Social Media - #edtech #revenue #investors  
 
Revenue is one of the ways that investors measure and assess a company's performance and future. So, it is important for edtech entrepreneurs to have practices in place to correctly present themselves to investors, ready themselves to correctly report their earnings, and understand what can or should not be disclosed.
 
In this session, participants will: 
  • Explore the basics and importance of accrual revenue recognition 
  • Outline common mistakes that are made in revenue recognition and reporting 
  • Examine practical solutions for early stage companies 
  • Identify common investor questions on revenue recognition and evaluate ways to respond to them
