In the early stages of development, founders have a lot to focus on. Those questions of infrastructure -- like accounting and HR -- tend to take a back seat.
This is a mistake. The earlier that you can get your systems in place, the more secure a foundation your company will have.
Accounting for startups doesn't need to be very complicated. You just need to focus on the essentials and put defined systems and processes in place.
In this presentation from Ryan Johnson, VP of Operations for Early Growth Financial Services (www.earlygrowthfinancialservices.com), you'll learn how to get set up and create an accounting system that will grow with your company.
Topics covered include:
- Accounting pre-funding vs post-funding
