The basics of finance at in5 Innovation Hub
Dubai Internet City's in5 hosted an hour-long overview of finance, followed by a networking reception, this Tuesday evening. Apart from taking in some useful knowledge, it was also an opportunity to have a look at a part of Knowledge Village I had not seen before.
Genesis Institute's Binod Shankar delivered an adage-replete presentation, starting with a couple of lists and local real-life examples of good and bad financial practices, then briefly dissecting income statements, balance sheets, and cash flow statements, before closing with a summary on ratios. Much of it was familiar to me from my B-school days, but it was nice to refresh on the topic after so many years.
