Moody's Grant

Cash Flow Gets Easier for Small Businesses Thanks to Our  Partnership With Moody’s Corporation


We have partnered with the Moody’s Corporation, a global provider of credit ratings, research, tools and analysis to collectively provide education, certifications, and tools on cash-flow management and forecasting to the nation’s largest small business assistance network, America’s Small Business Development Centers (SBDCs).   

 

By delivering cash flow management and forecasting education combined with cutting-edge software to the SBDC Network, this partnership will enhance the impact of SBDCs to stimulate entrepreneurship and help small businesses grow. The three-year grant will provide training & certification by cash-flow expert Finagraph Corporation, the makers of CashFlowTool. This includes in-person and online training courses as well as certification that will be delivered at national, regional and state SBDC events as well as e-learning training & certification opportunities. 


Three Easy Steps to Cashflow Success

1. SBDC Advisors complete their cashflow certification courses online or in-person.

2. SBDCs advisors and centers empower their clients with their in-depth cash-flow expertise 

3. After an SBDC client has met with their advisor they will receive a 6-month free Cashflow.com subscription to help them manage and forecast their cash flow.
