About this event

Join Valence for our Founders Only Event Series featuring Valence Funding Network founder Matthew Parker of Rapidly. Start 2021 on a strong note with a workshop on all things tax and accounting for startups!

Rapidly is the 100% virtual and 100% stress free way to get your business’s tax and accounting completed. The event will feature lessons and learnings from Rapidly’s own founding story, covering topics such as individual and business tax preparation, bookkeeping, financial modeling, and more. When starting a company there is no such thing as hiring a tax and accounting professional too early. Making sure your financials are in order provides a solid foundation to position your startup for success in the new year. And the Founders Only community is here to help!

Valence’s Founders Only is a peer to peer group for education and support. We invite founders to have real conversations with each other about the triumphs and struggles around what it means to start a business. Come prepared with questions for the Rapidly team, and we can take on tax and accounting obligations as a community.
