Mixing company credit cards with rapid headcount growth isn't a situation that can scale. Many startups wait too long to put proper controls and processes in place and pay the price with undisciplined spending and a mess for accounting.
Oftentimes it's the responsibility of the first finance person to help the company "grow up" and get controls in place, and start working down the monthly burn.
In this webinar, JD Higginbotham, Controller at Ridecell, and Thejo Kote, founder and CEO at Airbase, will discuss the control, recording, and reporting challenges JD faced when he first started at Ridecell and how he solved them with Airbase.
With over 20 years of experience, JD has worked with software companies at all stages of growth, helping them build out robust finance teams, streamline financial operations, and manage key relationships with investors, auditors, and regulators.
A seasoned entrepreneur, Thejo is the Founder and CEO of Airbase, the cloud-based spend management platform for growing companies. Prior to Airbase, Thejo co-founded Automatic which was acquired by SiriusXM in 2017.
