July’s Maker Meetup at Brooklyn Tweed dives into creating and evaluating financial reports for your business and its various functions. Your understanding of balance sheets, profit and loss statements, and financial projections are key to your company’s success and sustainability. And once you have confidence in those numbers, you can thoughtfully balance your spend and invest back into your business in support of your further growth.
Join us for our Maker Meetup, Thursday July 25, to demystify financial documents. We’re inviting two financial experts to walk you through not only best practices for pulling the reports you need, but also how to make use of the information provided so that you can learn and grow your business.
This evening’s content will include:
Complimentary drinks and snacks
Networking with other entrepreneurs and makers
Review of P&Ls
Advice for acting on projections
Decoding balance sheets
This event is FREE for Portland Made members, and $15 general admission.
