LONDON, 23 November 2021 / PRNewswire / – During their years in professional services, Asif Ahmed and Luc Farren, the entrepreneurs and co-founders behind The Financial Department (TFD) discovered that there was no way for entrepreneurs to instantly learn about key financial concepts that would impact their businesses. If they ever came across this information, it would lack context and nuance, ultimately leading to over-reliance on professional advisers. Therefore, they have designed an online content platform, with carefully selected contributors, resources and topics with the aim of bringing the whole community together on one platform as well as through activities LinkedIn and Instagram canals.
With its easy-to-access format and small size, all the knowledge you need is in the palm of your hand, wherever you are. Listen to a 5-minute podcast before a meeting to improve your knowledge, or get back to basics with an in-depth video brought to you by top finance professionals, all of whom have spent years advising high-growth companies. Information is tailored to the needs and accessibility of those who would benefit most from it.
TFD’s co-founders believe today’s finance professionals are working with an outdated learning and development model. Entrepreneurs need to be empowered by working with platforms that match their innovation and agility. Just like the founder Asif Ahmed comments: “There is no good reason why entrepreneurs should not have access to world-class financial information at a reasonable cost from the start.
