Forecasting and modelling of your business can sometimes feel a little bit like peering into a black box, however it is a vital part of both the successful management of your business and raising capital. Join our panel as we go back to the beginning from financial basics, through to financial modelling and how this can support you to effectively plan your capital rounds.
You should be present for the whole duration of this event.

Having already co-founded and successfully exited a subscription-based start-up in the UK, Matt founded Oxygen Advisors in 2014. After moving back to New Zealand, Matt quickly saw that many high-growth companies here either didn’t have the capacity or the capability to manage their internal finance functions - and the genesis of the Oxygen Advisors idea grew organically from there. Matt qualified as a Chartered Accountant through PwC, but has spent the last 11 years working within or alongside some of New Zealand’s most exciting high-growth companies.
