Meetup @ Ooosh: Preventing Due Diligence Hassles for Startups
Thu 3 November 2016, 6:45 PM – 8:30 PM HKT
Meetup @ Ooosh is a series of events aimed to help startups thrive in this competitive environment, may it be new ideas, new technology, essential business knowhow, startup insights or even new ways to do old things.
It is easy (and in some cases advisable) to outsource accounting functions for startups at an early stage. However it is still important that founders and team members understand basic principles of accounting to ensure that your startup treads on the right path from the get go.
Make sure that your startup is prepared to work with investors and partners. Why risk breaking down and blow up a deal? Learn how to take preventive measures and keep your books healthy and clean.
Topics to be covered that night include:
Financial information a potential investor looks at before investing
Startups' financial red flags from an investor point of view
Common accounting mistakes/pitfalls startups encounter that will take them a lot of time to fix down the road
- How to determine whether to do accounting in-house or have it outsourced & the useful accounting tools for startups
