6 Best Practices to Prepare for a Capital Raise
You never know when an investment opportunity will present itself, and in today’s financial climate, you need to be prepared so you can act quickly and without delay when it does. Learn the things you can do from within your finance and accounting organization to BE prepared, not just TO prepare. The six best practices outlined in this video will help you to be ready, and potentially save your organizations tens of thousands, if not millions, of dollars.
This is the third segment in a series of the “Preparing for a Capital Raise: Benchmarks and Accounting Best Practices” webinar, presented by Rob Belcher with SaaS Capital, Kari Minton with PlusPoint Consulting and Chris Weber with SaaSOptics (now Maxio).
Often times accounting is thought of as a back office or cost center, which is a mistake we’ve seen many companies make. It can be very costly to have poor systems and poor data – not only on a day-to-day basis, but especially when you go to raise or sell. It can literally cost you tens of millions of dollars. Whereas if you start these best practices early, it will not only be much easier, but free you from very expensive and time consuming delays.
