Growing Games CPH: The financial road from idea to reality
The financial road from idea to reality. Do not make the mistakes to place other business goals ahead of your company's cash flow.
At Growing Games, Copenhagen, in November, we'll be focusing on how you control your finances before your finances end up controlling you.
It is important to spend time building your product and generating attention, but if you don't have money, you won’t be around long enough to worry about those other things. To create a positive cash flow, it's downright vital to your company. Positive cash flow is a situation where the cash inflows during a period are higher than the cash outflows during the same period.
When: November 18, from 10.00 -16.00.
Where: Interactive Denmark, Bernhard Bangs Allé 25, Frederiksberg.
Registration from 9.30, where we will serve coffee and refreshments. The program starts at 10 sharp.

Besides his work for the Swedish Games Industry, Martin has more than 20 years experience starting and growing companies from 0 to 100+ employees. Bring your questions for Martin!
