A few weeks ago, I had the pleasure of participating in this year’s Ascent Conference, a staple of the startup, SaaS, and venture capital communities in the Greater NYC area. Because of COVID, the event was held virtually. I gave a keynote presentation on “How to Extend Your Runway with a Finance and Accounting Playbook.” As the founder and CEO of AcctTwo, a services and technology company delivering the Future of Finance and Accounting to nearly 1,000 organizations throughout the country, my team and I have firsthand experience implementing the processes, controls, and technology needed to optimize financial resources for SaaS companies at variety of growth stages. As a result of this experience, we’ve developed a Finance and Accounting Playbook that I shared during the keynote. The effects of COVID-19 for the past few months have only reinforced the need for this kind of planning.
