In this talk from the Denver Founder Institute, Jim Franklin explains how to manage finances in all stages of your company. In addition to having a financial plan that matches your operating plan, Jim warns founders about the dangers of  improperly calculating costs and how taking other people’s money means giving up control.

Jim Franklin is the Former CEO of SendGrid - the leader in email deliverability. Jim is also a Mentor for the Denver Founder Institute, and will be speaking at a free startup event in Denver on October 14, 2014.

An experienced financial advisor, Jim advises founders to avoid taking investor cash and always think about your business as a long term entity. The lifetime value of a customer is worth far more than an immediate sale.
