Shareholders and board members don’t need to see day-to-day reports of the company, but they do need to see enough to understand the current status of the business. This helps the team identify trends, anomalies, and opportunities to make well informed decisions.
When it comes to raising capital down the road, your current investors are almost always going to be your most likely candidates. Keeping them continuously informed can help build rapport for future rounds, and regular financial updates ensures there are surprises over any coming capital needs.
