Managing Cash Flows in the New Normal – Startups & SME’s

Finance is the common currency of all businesses and Cash the most liquid of this currency.” – Mani

Managing Cash Flows is the most critical part of business management in today’s economic situation. Small businesses and Startups feel the stress a lot more than the larger businesses due to the low level of back up funds they tend to have.

Finance Management is a ubiquitous part of business management- a common binder; a glue, that keeps different verticals of any business together. It is about money but not only about money. There’s more to it; a predictive side, a management side and a governance side.

Startups and SMEs invariably have small core teams; the entrepreneurs are often personally not too conversant with finance management. In their struggles to build the businesses with limited resources, quality inputs in finance management can be a great help.

Quite often, the absence of good quality finance management is felt much more than its presence! But pray that you don’t learn from the absence- it is wiser to learn from its presence!!!
