This course covers financial statement basics, with the objective to not only learn to read, understand and analyze balance sheets, income statements, statements of cash flows, and notes to financial statements, but also to prepare them. The focus will also be on how these statements give various readers insight into business performance. The course will cover key accounting concepts including generally accepted accounting principles (GAAP), accruals, debits/credits, and journal and adjusting entries. Additional topics will include learning how to prepare and read a capitalization table, understanding pre-money vs post-money, ownership, and paths to liquidity. Discussions on current financial trends in Venture Capital and in tech companies will also be incorporated.

This course will have 7 class meetings. To allow for a makeup class because of unforeseen circumstances this course has an automatic make-up class scheduled for the 8th week.
