The Startup Academy is an initiative to share the expertise of our team of financial analysts at The Startup CFO.

Until then, training in finance for startups was minimal, so we decided to share all our knowledge with the ecosystem.

We have worked with more than 100 startups, managing different day-to-day issues in each of them. This knowledge has allowed us to train our students from a practical point of view and focused on analyzing real cases.

What our students value most when learning with us


The online learning format, with recorded classes and live case studies, allows each student to manage the investment of time.


A large community of top profiles in the ecosystem fosters networking and continuous improvement among our students.


Analysis and case studies on real situations give an exact vision of applying the concepts in day-to-day life.


"Startups are very particular businesses and immersed in extreme uncertainty. For this reason, a large part of the financial knowledge in regular companies is not useful for analysing startups, and therefore needs to learn a new language to understand them. I had to go through this transition when I moved from consulting to startups, and so did hundreds of entrepreneurs, investors, people entering the sector...

For this reason, and after having worked with more than 100 startups, we thought we could provide a course that would bring together this much-needed knowledge for the ecosystem."

Jaime Medina

CEO & Co-founder The Startup CFO

"In the last few years, knowledge transfer and training are changing radically, especially because of specialisation and online education. Universities or business schools often do not cover new business models extensively, but are lagging behind.

On the other hand, in online schools it is easy that the community does not contribute as much because there are profiles with too different objectives. We believe that with this course we can provide high quality knowledge about cutting-edge startups while maintaining a very high level in our community, as our students from past editions have already confirmed."
