Further 41% of small business owners consider themselves to be financially illiterate. Despite these challenges many still rely on outdated methods to manage their finances and don't utilize an accountant until it may be too late.

How can we help change those statistics?
Many of you heard at NACCE 2018 that NACCE is partnering with Intuit Education on a new pilot program entitled, "Financial Management for Entrepreneurs Curriculum Initiative".
 
The overall goal of the pilot is to empower future entrepreneurs with the right financial management tools and skills that they need to be successful. 
 
We are currently looking for one lead college to develop a financial management for entrepreneurs course "shell"/modular curriculum that simulates the real-world experiences of a new business owner/entrepreneur. Click here for more details...
