Speaking the Language: What You Need to Know About Finance and Accounting

Raining-money
Whether you start your own organization after college or join someone else’s, at some point you’re going to have to know stuff about money. The Patricelli Center for Social Entrepreneurship wants you to come talk finance with Carl Byers ’93:

Entrepreneurs, intrapreneurs, and changemakers of all kinds must learn to speak the language of finance in order to clearly communicate their vision and plans. This session will explain essential ideas related to for-profits, non-profits, finance, and accounting, so you can articulate ideas in a format — with precise terminology — that will be compelling to colleagues, funders, and other stakeholders. In addition to terminology, this session will cover the process of developing financial plans and documents that make your vision credible to those who have the resources needed to enable your work.

Carl Byers ’93 is an Adjunct Lecturer in Public Policy at the Kennedy School of Government at Harvard University and a Venture Partner at Fidelity Biosciences.
