Accounting Training Sucks.
The first three years, it's all about T-accounts. You survive 15 exams and you qualify! 🎉
But your first day in a startup and you realise you don't have any of the skills you actually need.
Something's wrong here...
So we're changing that.
Finance and accounting training should give you the skills you need for the future. It should teach you how to solve real problems. It should train you how to use real technology.
We're building a FinOps community - a movement - so that together, we can create something so much better.
We want you to be a part of that.Read our story.
How it works.
COURSES WE'D ACTUALLY WANT TO DO.
We were sick of courses with no practical elements where you couldn't get stuck into how things would actually work in the real world.
So, we designed courses that would actually do that.
Our courses are designed around real-world scenarios that let you use real start-up tools to solve real startup problems. You'll learn as you do, supported by our library of fundamental content that you just need to know about.
They are all flexible and online, so you can dip in whenever you works best for you.
We know you're going to love them.
THE PRACTICAL SKILLS YOU ACTUALLY NEED.
These course to help you solve real-world problems that you will actually encounter working in a startup. They're all about using software and developing processes that will scale as your business grows.
Oh! And did we mention. They are all FREE 👏.
How to bring payroll in house to build integrated, scaleable HR & Payroll processes with PayFit that will save you time as you scale.
How to enable team spend while staying in control of expenses as your team scales, using Pleo to automate and simplify your processes.
How to plan costs and create a budget, forecast and report against actuals, and build out scenario-based revenue models fit for investors Causal.
How to automate payments, make easy bulk payments and deal with international payments using _rebank as you expand overseas.
How to save time, energy and human error by automating calculations with Apps Script.
How to use VBA to calculate and display sales data for your revenue summaries.
ALMOST EVERYTHING YOU DIDN'T KNOW, YOU DIDN'T KNOW.
Supporting and supplementing the real-world FInOps projects are our FinOps Fundamentals. It's a handbook of all the things we thought every FinOps Expert should know. And we want to share it with you for FREE!
What you need to know about HR, payroll and building scalable processes to pay your team.
All about expenses and spend management: how to spend cash and control it as you scale.
The low-down on planning and budgeting, and what to think about when you model out costs and revenue.
Be a part of it.
We know what it's like.
Working in a startup or small business has so many upsides - and we are BIG fans - but it can often feel like there's no one you can turn to, to answer your questions, give you guidance or help you navigate a thorny issue.
That's why we created the FinOps Forum. It's a free, slack community where you can find out more about finance, operations, start-ups, scale-ups and technology.
Topics such as: hiring, the best tech tools, scaling advice, investment questions, tricky tax topics... it's all there.
And we'd love you to be a part of it too 🤩.
Our beta testers thought it was pretty cool.
It was brilliant to meet likeminded people. I now think how about how I can automate everything in my day-to-day 🦾

Loved it. I'd always wanted to learn some coding but could never get stuck in. I've now upgraded to using SQL everywhere I can :)
