Financial Literacy Track

The Financial Literacy Track is designed to empower entrepreneurs with increased knowledge on all things financial. Understanding your financials is key as the owner of your own enterprise - you need to be the first to know if your business is growing or folding. Unfortunately, not all entrepreneurs are financially literate. 

Entrepreneurs will learn how cash flow and profits are different and why cash flow is so important. They will review financial reports and learn how to understand the financial condition of their business. Finally, for those who need capital to start or grow a business, we explore multiple sources of funding for their business during the funding options program.  Cash flow and basic accounting skills are crucial for entrepreneurs as lenders and investors expect entrepreneurs to understand these before they meet. You will also be fully prepared for consulting and our LEADING EDGE Business Planning Course.

This robust new track will only be offered twice in 2016. Join us for one or all of the courses offered below.
