You need a great team behind you
Not every startup can afford a CFO, but your survival and success depends on critical decisions you make early on. We offer a flexible part-time model that is affordable and scalable as your startup grows. Here’s how a startup CFO can help you succeed.
Commercial and strategic advice
We’ve worked with the big players in Seattle and Silicon Valley, so we know how they operate and what best practice looks like for a tech startup. A part-time CFO helps you to create the strategy and commercial plan to achieve what you need, from confirming your next steps of growth to securing your next round of funding. It’s big business tech experience applied to innovative startups growing at a rapid pace.
Planning and metrics
A startup CFO works with you to build a solid financial, strategic and operational plan to align and guide your team. We’ll go through key metrics including lifetime value, cost per acquisition, non-paid to paid user conversion and cost per channel, to ultimately build a robust plan of attack.
Getting funding for your startup can be time-consuming and a complex process, but it doesn’t have to be. A startup CFO will help you with the 4 stages: Hygiene & data room preparation, creating the financial model, narrative or pitch deck, then finding the right investors and negotiating deals. Our experience includes asset purchases and sales, equity capital raises of $10+ million and debt deals. We have a network of private investors, venture capital firms and debt financing contacts. We’re equipped to guide you and secure the best funding outcome for your startup.
