#StartupChats – Financial Forecasting and Future Predictions

About This Event

A financial forecast can help you prepare your business for changes in the market down the road by seeing if the road ahead looks promising or disastrous. Predicting these changes before they happen can make or break a business. Find out what goes into a financial forecast, how it can guide your business, and what to do when a forecast turns out to be wrong.

Join Startup Canada (@Startup_Canada) and Intuit Quickbooks CA (@QuickBooksCA) on Friday, April 12th for a live #StartupChats on Twitter from 12pm – 1pm ET. Hosted by Lyndon Johnson @THINK_Lyndon, Founder of Toronto-based COMMS.BAR, our topic is Financial Forecasting and Future Predictions!
