Our world has become technology-driven, and perhaps because of that reason, we are almost always of the opinion that only tech professionals can build great startups.
But did you know that non-tech professionals also play a huge role in his ecosystem?
The ever-so-crucial roles that these non-tech professionals or finance guys play are often untold but take them out of the ecosystem and it might fall like dominoes.
In a conversation with CA Jarna Gaglaani, CFO at Udrive a leading Car Sharing startup in the UAE, she mentioned,
“Most of the time what entrepreneurs fail to understand is that finance people are not just accountants or bookkeepers!
Finance people can interpret data and provide valuable insights. They are not just about your typical Profit & Loss and balance sheet, they go way beyond that.
I think the day the management, founders, or VCs understand this, they would all realize the value we can bring into decision-making.”
