Back to Basics: Financial Fundamentals

When it comes to startups, SVB's Dan Allred has seen the good, the bad, and the ugly. Here's the deal - it's all about the numbers. Many entrepreneurs bite of more than they can chew with sophisticated business models. Others drown in vanity metrics.

In this class, Dan will take you back to basics, covering the fundmental metrics and financial accounting principles that will make or break your startup.

We're turning to the power of the crowd to source the topics for this class. Email to let us know what YOU want Dan to teach.


For early-stage folks, topics might include the metrics that LEAN startup pioneer Steve Blank thinks every entrepreneur should know. Or things could get REALLY crazy, with Dan covering Income Statements, Balance Sheets and Cash Flow statements (we'll try to keep him under control). IT'S UP TO YOU!

We bet your brain will be ready for a breather by the end of this one. Join us for cocktails after to cut loose and connect.
