Tuesday - December 9, 2014, Burlington Hive, Burlington - 7:00 pm
Join us on Tuesday, December 9 - 7:00 pm in Burlingon as we celebrate the end of another great year for Silicon Halton. For this meetup we thought we'd reflect on how the year went (good, bad and ugly) for Silicon Halton and look towards to 2015 and beyond. Nothing too serious though.... this is more of a social get together first to enjoy each other's company, combined with a little reflection and casual brainstorming.

November 20, 2014, 6pm - 7:30pm | Burlington HiVE | Partner Workshop
Join SB Partners for their next Next Gen CEO Workshop, Cash is King
Cash is the fuel for building strong businesses. Many companies are profitable, but cash poor. Lots of revenue on the book, but no money in the bank. Without cash flow, it is easy for business owners to run into trouble or even bankruptcy. At the end of the day, cash is always king. Income statements and balance sheets might look good, yet there is not enough cash for payroll.
Join Michael Kee and Mustafa Dossajeee from SB Partners who will share what you need to know to keep on top of cash flow. How are you generating it? Where is it being used and how much do you really have?
