Intuit QuickBooks launches ‘Awesome Small Business Teams’ campaign
Bangalore, India | July 1st , 2014
Intuit Inc. (Nasdaq: INTU), a leading provider of business and financial management solutions for small and mid–sized businesses, has collaborated with TiE Delhi–NCR to launch a Financial Management Training for entrepreneurs and start–ups. The training, which will be held on July 11, 2014 at the India Habitat Centre in New Delhi, is designed to improve entrepreneursí abilities to more effectively manage their finances.
Designed by Intuit, the curriculum will be delivered in–person by an experienced business coach over the course of three hours to strengthen the attendees’ ability to plan for key events in the business lifecycle like seeking funding, hiring new employees, as well as improve their ability to manage day to day business finances, including things like costing and invoice management. This training will focus on demystifying financial concepts so that entrepreneurs from non–finance backgrounds feel confident in making critical financial decisions in a timely, strategic manner, helping them compete in an increasingly global, mobile world.
Divided into three modules, the course covers topics including preparing to pitch investors and approach banks for funding, understanding core financial terms and indicators to measure success, budgeting and invoicing, and the technology solutions to help manage day to day finances, among other topics.
Looking forward to the event, Nikhil Arora, Vice President and Managing Director of Intuit India said, “Intuit is excited to collaborate with TiE Delhi–NCR on the upcoming financial management training because it teaches the core skills that every successful entrepreneur must have, but ironically, are often the last skills thought of. We ensured our approach to the training takes advantage of the real–life business experience the attendees already have and so the course is highly interactive and discussion–based. On the Monday after the training, attendees will be able to put what they learned into action in their businesses.”
Geetika Dayal, Executive Director of TiE Delhi–NCR said,“Financial management is one of the most essential aspects of running a profitable and scalable business. In order to successfully implement any great business idea, entrepreneurs need to understand and manage their finances during all stages of growth to be able to realize their dreams. Like TiE, Intuit understands the importance of enabling startups with the tools they need to grow, so we are excited to join hands with Intuit and bring this financial training to our community.”
