Wing Academy on Role of a CFO

April 23, 2019

The Wing Academy is an exclusive, invitation-only series for startup Founders and CEOs to learn on domain topics of critical importance to company-building. The Academy features a curriculum taught by leading entrepreneurs in Business Tech and delivered through a combination of frameworks, data sets, case studies, and interactive dialogue.

The Wing Academy on What a CFO Does focuses on the role and value of the CFO as a business partner to Founders and CEOs. In our view, the importance of a CFO is not well understood, and the academy will serve to answer the who, why, and when for a CFO and to provide tangible financial frameworks and metrics for startup success.
