Not your regular course.

 

We created this course to be one that we'd actually want to do. We were sick of courses with no practical elements where you couldn't get stuck in to how things would actually work in the real world. 

This one is designed so that you get not only the fundamentals you need to know about, but you also then get to put these into practice in a 'real-world' project. 

Oh! And it's completely free!

Real-World FinOps

THE PRACTICAL SKILLS YOU ACTUALLY NEED.

 

Put the fundamentals into practice with Pleo.

You'll be setting up processes to manage spend with our 'startup' Clarity LTD:

  • automate invoice collection
  • review and manke payment-runs in Pleo
  • Set-up team cards with limits and approvals
  • Report on spend across the business

You'll be introduced to Clarity LTD - our 'real-world' startup - to solve their real startup problems using real startup software. Add it to Your Library and complete the project using Pleo.

Project Details

The 'Real-world FinOps' project will take you through a key issue all scale-ups face.

How do you let your team spend cash whilst still straying in control?

As your team scales, the processes that you had set-up will start to break. Every rapidly-scaling business will get to a point where more people need to start paying for things. Having a great system in place to manage your expenses and spend as you scale, is going to ensure you stay in control of that spend, while ensuring those processes don't hold you back.

This project will take you through how to practically set-up an expense management system, Pleo, so you can go ahead and do this in the real-world.

First, you'll be mapping out the process for Clarity LTD, identifying the issues that currently hold them back.

Then, you'll think about the right software, deep dive into Pleo and collate invoices to manage them in one place.

Next, you'll be setting up team cards for Clarity LTD, setting approval and spend limits.

Finally, you'll look at reviewing spend and reporting by department into their accounting software, Xero.

Give it a go, it's FREE!

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 🤩.

ACCOUNTING TRAINING SUCKS...

So we're changing that.

 

Finance and accounting training should give you the skills you need for the future. It should show you how to solve real problems you will encounter everyday. It should show you how to use real technology.

We think that together, we can build a learning community that can do much better.

But we can't do it alone.

Years of Academy Training Wasted!

Our beta testers thought it was pretty cool.

It was brilliant to meet like-minded people. I now think how about how I can automate everything in my day-to-day 🦾

Inga - Startup Operations Guru

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 :)
