I was looking for an introductory course to accounting and financeas I am an investor in early stage startups, and accounting/finance always seems to be an area which is confusing for founders.

This course teaches entrepreneurs, startups and small businesses all things business accounting andentrepreneurialfinance related, A to Z. Starting with an introduction to accounting concepts, we move into financial reports and how to create them, understand them and analyze them. Bookkeepers, Accountants, CFO's and Business Owners alike would all benefit from this course.

Next, we learn about budgeting and forecasting. Next we discuss growing your company, how to understand and analyze it using non conventional reports.
