THIS MONTH'S THEME: PLANNING
No matter the size, stage, or industry of your startup, planning is essential to the success of your business. Dedicating time to plan for a new year or an upcoming project can improve your productivity, provide a reference point to track progress, and compel you to rethink how your actions contribute to your long-term business goals. Similarly, creating a realistic and accurate budget cannot be overstated when it comes to planning for the future. We’re kicking off 2021 by focusing on the importance of planning and developing a strong financial foundation for the next year.
Our virtual events and curated resources will help you:
- Make an action plan for 2021
- Build your foundation for tax season and beyond
- Develop KPIs to track your business performance and progress
- Generate a budget that provides your company with a foundation for growth
