All-new online platform The Finance Department presents entrepreneurs and their finance teams with a wealth of knowledge and resources to improve their skills on demand and reduce professional advice expenses
LONDON, November 23, 2021 /PRNewswire/ — During their years in professional services, Asif Ahmed and Luke Farrenthe entrepreneurs and co-founders behind The Finance Department (TFD) found that there was no way for entrepreneurs to instantly learn key financial concepts that would impact their business. If they ever stumbled upon this information, it would lack context and nuance, ultimately leading to an overreliance on professional advisers. Therefore, they designed an online content platform, with carefully selected contributors, resources and topics with the aim of bringing the whole community together on one platform as well as through active LinkedIn and Instagram channels.
With its easy to access format and small size, all the knowledge you need is in the palm of your hand wherever you are. Listen to a 5-minute podcast before a meeting to refresh your knowledge, or get back to basics with an in-depth video presented by top finance professionals, all of whom have spent years advising high-growth companies. Information is tailored to the needs and accessibility of those who would benefit most.
The co-founders of TFD believe that today’s finance professionals work with an outdated learning and development model. Entrepreneurs need to be empowered by working with platforms that match their innovation and agility. Just as founder Asif Ahmed comments: “There’s no good reason why entrepreneurs shouldn’t have access to world-class financial information upfront at a reasonable cost – no one, until now, has acknowledged that entrepreneurs have need the best advice when they can least afford it”.
