39: Reinventing the Spreadsheet With Taimur Abdaal

Update: 2021-10-05


Life is becoming a lot less predictable, meaning businesses need to start evolving their preparation for the future by turning unforeseen circumstances into something they already saw coming. However, with Excel spreadsheets really requiring a master of both the program and finance to undertake such a project, many are deterred away from including uncertainty in their number crunching. 

Our guest today, Taimur Abdaal, introduces his product, Causal, a clearer way to tackle those frustrating spreadsheets, and reasons for why every employee should be up to speed with the finances at hand. 

Taimur is a graduate of the University of Oxford with a degree in Mathematics and Statistics. He’s been awarded the OxTALENT Student Innovation Award, for his online arthritic game Speedsums,  as well as the CREST Gold Award.

He currently serves as the founder and CEO of the start up Causal, an all-in-one FP&A tool for modern finance teams.
