Successful startups start with smart money management techniques. IceAlex, the startup support network of the north, is hosting a conference to give entrepreneurs the financial tools they’ll need to get ahead.
We’re always hearing about the money investors have been putting in startups, but what makes an someone jump at the opportunity to fund a business? Seasoned entrepreneurs will know that a strong idea is never enough to propel a business forward – investors are more likely to fund startups with strong business skills, run by people who know how to handle money.
That’s where IceAlex comes in. The Alexandrian startup support network, which recently launched the city’s first business incubator, is hosting “Fund Your Startups” conference next weekend on the 8th and 9th of July. The two-day long event will teach attendees the essentials of business finance management, featuring CFA Institute member and SME banking expert Ahmed Magdy as a speaker. The conference topics include setting effective financial plans for their businesses and how to make sound decisions regarding cost, profitability, practicality, and other aspects of business management. It will also teach entrepreneurs how to use financial models to make smart decisions about raising capital, budgeting, and more.
