NJThrives #059: Fundamentals of Small Business Finances

Understanding the financial health of a company is one of the most vital skills for aspiring investors, entrepreneurs, and managers to develop BUT how do we read and use financial statements to make smart business decisions? Armed with this knowledge, investors can better identify promising opportunities while avoiding undue risk, and professionals of all levels can make more strategic business decisions. Part of the growth of most companies is the ability to attract funding. Financial statements provide lenders with significant information about a company’s financial and operational health, and its ability to pay its bills. Although the profitability level shown on a company’s income statement is of interest to lenders, bankers typically spend more time evaluating the balance sheet and cash flow statement. The best part? The NJSBDC has a team of Finance Consultants created specifically to help small businesses at no cost. In this webinar Ryan Silvestre, NJSBDC Capital Team Consultant will show you: - What are the basic financial statements - Basic understanding of how to analyze financial statements - How to use the information for forecasting and attracting capital ✅ The more you know about your own numbers, the easier it is to grow them! ➡️ Register for this webinar today at no-cost About NJ Thrives Small Business Webinars & Events: Weekly live webinar series dedicated to helping small businesses in New Jersey THRIVE.
