Event description
Startup founders and small business owners have both simple and complex financial needs - all at the same time.

About this event

To successfully scale your company, you need to understand how money moves through your business. But where can you go to learn this information without completing an accounting degree?

Our focus is to empower startup founders and small business owners with the critical financial knowledge needed to become scalable, investable and saleable in 2022.

“The BDO Courses have been the best business planning courses I’ve done by far. I’ve done plenty of professional development over the last eight years of business ownership and the energy, team talent and content the BDO team bring is top notch.”

- Paul Mead, Co-founder of She Maps
