Assessing and improving financial performance

Introduction

In France, nearly 8 out of 10 start-ups created fail within the first 5 years. The second most important cause of these failures is linked to the poor financial management of the company. Thus, a good understanding of its financial situation is necessary to ensure the sustainability of its structure.

IÉSEG CONSEIL’s support is based on three axes and enables us to assess your company’s financial performance, to provide you with recommendations on growth and optimal means of financing, and to assist you in the day-to-day management of your business through your financial data.
