One day Business Finance Bootcamp – 31st August 2023

31 August, 2023 @ 9:30 am - 4:30 pm

A one-day session giving you tools, advice and connections to empower you with the knowledge and energy to start your business journey

The Business Finance Bootcamp is the Third in a series of three Bootcamps to help you start a business, keep it going and continue to grow it.

Finances are often the last thing business owners want to look at or consider, but making money is the fundamental reason most people go into business.

Digital technology has revolutionised the way we manage accounts, and with the government now making tax digital, keeping digital records is actually a legal requirement.

This one-day Bootcamp will help you to stay organised, legal and compliant, and you may even enjoy making the numbers work.

The Business Finance Bootcamp includes the following modules:

  • We will look at start-up costs and funding, including the many different options for raising funds
  • What is profit, and how to develop a Profit & Loss (P&L) forecast
  • How digital Technology has changed the way we run accounts
  • The many different digital apps and how they help, including expenses, accounting, bookkeeping and payroll
  • A presentation from a local, successful entrepreneur about developing experts around you to deliver success

In addition to the above, after the Bootcamp each delegate will receive two 1-hour follow-up one-to-one sessions in the following weeks for bespoke advice.

Cost: Business Start-up & Go one-day Bootcamp costs only £20 per person, including VAT.

Location: StartUp Croydon Business Centre, Weatherill House, 23 Whitestone Way, Croydon.

Times: Registration on the day is strictly 9:30 am, and the sessions will end at around 4.30 pm.

Speakers will include:

Esther Kyesimira: Esther is a local accountant with a passion for Xero and the power of the software.

Esther works with clients to help them understand automating invoices and bills, reconciling bank transactions, and getting up-to-date reporting on financial performance.

Ben Oram: Ben is StartUp Croydon’s Operations Manager and oversees all activity at Weatherill House, including managing the accounts and facilities. Ben is a constant familiar face to our tenants and service users and is the first to offer support to anyone that needs it.

He is as happy presenting on StartUp Croydon’s Business Bootcamp course as he is helping move furniture from office to office. His session on funding covers the best ways to access finance for your business, as well as deciding whether you need it at all.

All delegates who complete the Bootcamp session are eligible to apply for our biannual Business Incubator course.
