"Excellent course! I was looking for an introductory course to accounting and finance as I am an investor in early stage startups, and accounting/finance always seems to be an area which is confusing for founders. Chris Benjamin definitely has used his real world experience and education to create a course which teaches entrepreneurs and startups everything they should know from the start about accounting and finance. Kudos!" - JT Lexington, Maven Capital

This course teaches entrepreneurs, startups and small businesses all things business accounting and entrepreneurial finance 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.
After growing your company, we talk about raising capital and what is involved and avenues you can take. One section is devoted to the initial public offering process and the timing, costs and best business practices involved.

About The Instructor
Chris Benjamin, MBA & CFO is a seasoned professional with over 25 years experience in accounting and finance. Having spent the first 10 years of my career in corporate settings with both large and small companies, I learned a lot about the accounting process, managing accounting departments, financial reporting, external reporting to board of directors and the Securities and Exchange Commission, and working with external auditors.
The following 10+ years I decided to go into CFO Consulting, working with growing companies and bringing CFO level experience to companies. I help implement proper best business practices in accounting and finance, consult on implementation of accounting systems, implementing accounting procedures, while also still fulfilling the CFO roll for many of my clients which includes financial reporting, auditing, working with investors, financial analysis and much more.
