The Big “F” WORD ! How To Be Prepared for Financial Uncertainity | Future Females Durban

Wed Jul 29, 14:00 - Wed Jul 29, 15:00


Start-ups are filled with exciting new discoveries, but they can also be filled with loads of questions and uncertainty. A huge part of it all is the big “F” word we tend to avoid; Finances.

Managing personal finances can be tricky, let alone jumping into a venture with a business partner and managing company finances without things turning ugly.

However, having those tough conversations about money upfront can save you from the world of struggle later. Finding the right tact and timing is key to a successful, productive exchange.

The COVID-19 Pandemic has seen and will probably continue to see numerous businesses closing their doors for good. Although this can be due to various factors, it's an important time to ensure all financials are in order and all the hard conversations surrounding the topic are resolved to protect you and your partner from the resulting financial implications.

In this session, we will address;

- Financial questions to ask a potential business partner

-Conversations about how much each partner will financially contribute to the business.

-Division of profits between partners. Also, implications when one partner decides to leave the partnership.

-Financial questions to ask business partners when looking into closing down a business due to situations such as COVID.

-How to prep your company/ partnership financially for uncertain times.
