Accounting Office Hours

August 23 @ 10:30 am - 12:30 pm
Downtown Campus

Most startups hire outside professionals to help start their businesses; lawyers draft corporate documents, developers create a prototype, graphic designers for their logo, etc. However, many fail to work with an accountant until it is too late.
Many entrepreneurs have created a business plan but have not taken the time to put together a thorough financial projection. How are they going to make money? When do they plan to break even? How much capital do they need to raise? Proper financial forecasts will help you develop operational and staffing plans that will turn a business into success. Few investors will put money into a business without a set of thoughtful forecasts and excellent financial management.
Laying a foundation for sound financial processes early in your business will set you apart from the rest. A certified public accountant provides more than just tax planning; they are your business partner. Business decisions that are made can be tracked and analyzed to help ensure your personal and business goals are met. Proper policies and procedures can be put into place to reduce risk, increase efficiency, cut costs, and avoid fraud.

Digital Marketing Office Hours with WheelHouse Marketing

September 13 @ 10:30 am - 12:30 pm
Downtown Campus

Digital Marketing is something that is constantly changing and evolving. Do you know people used to buy Facebook followers and at one point in time that vanity metric could actually help a business. What you might not know is that now that action could actually destroy your business' Facebook presence. Why? Facebook is a product (just like Google, Bing, Youtube, etc.) and they want to provide the best experience for their customers. If you have thousands of people who like your business page but only 0.01% of those people engage (like, comment, share) with your posts then Facebook assumes your business probably isn't very interesting and Facebook's customers are going to leave Facebook because of your boring content. Your hard work will never get displayed to the real followers that you do have.
There are so many strategies for marketing your business online and they vary greatly from industry to industry. But! You have to have a strategy otherwise you will just be spending all your marketing dollars on wild stabs in the dark without ever really know if there has been any impact. We will discuss the best strategies for Attracting, Converting, Closing, and Delighting your potential customers.

For a free 30 minutes with WheelHouse Marketing contact Natalie@impactvc.com to reserve your spot!
