The added value that we provide

You may have asked yourself some of the questions we answer below. At The Startup CFO we work to give you answers to the problems that may arise in the financial management of your startup

Normally in the early stages of a startup it is the CEOs and COOs who are in charge of the administrative and financial tasks. We want you to stop investing time in these tasks so you can focus on developing your business

The time has come for an experienced CFO to take control of the financial area of your project but you can’t afford a senior profile. In The Startup CFO we integrate as a member of the team providing senior experience at the cost of a junior to help you with all your financial tasks

It is common for investors, right after the private funding round, to start asking for a detailed control of the finances and main metrics of your startup. We usually start working right at that moment, not only to control the financial department, but also to lead the relationship with investors

Analyzing in detail the current situation of your company to make the right decisions is essential to ensure the growth of your project. We focus on metrics analysis and cash flow control that will help you dedicate time to other tasks such as business development

Hiring an accountant is one of the first steps for any entrepreneur. However, the need for control grows as the financing received or the stage your business is in increases. We help you take your startup’s finances to the next level

Contact us

If you think we can help you take the financial and strategic management of your startup to the next level, send us a message. We will get back to you as soon as possible to meet and discuss how we can help you

The added value that we provide

You may have asked yourself some of the questions we answer below. At The Startup CFO we work to give you answers to the problems that may arise in the financial management of your startup

Do you think you should be in charge of your startup's financial tasks?

Normally in the early stages of a startup it is the CEOs and COOs who are in charge of the administrative and financial tasks. We want you to stop investing time in these tasks so you can focus on developing your business

Do you need a CFO for your startup but can't afford a senior profile?

The time has come for an experienced CFO to take control of the financial area of your project but you can’t afford a senior profile. In The Startup CFO we integrate as a member of the team providing senior experience at the cost of a junior to help you with all your financial tasks

Have you received funding and need support dealing with investors?

It is common for investors, right after the private funding round, to start asking for a detailed control of the finances and main metrics of your startup. We usually start working right at that moment, not only to control the financial department, but also to lead the relationship with investors

Do you think you are making the right financial decisions on time?

Analyzing in detail the current situation of your company to make the right decisions is essential to ensure the growth of your project. We focus on metrics analysis and cash flow control that will help you dedicate time to other tasks such as business development

Does your bookkeeper provide the financial solution you need?

Hiring an accountant is one of the first steps for any entrepreneur. However, the need for control grows as the financing received or the stage your business is in increases. We help you take your startup’s finances to the next level

Contact us

If you think we can help you take the financial and strategic management of your startup to the next level, send us a message. We will get back to you as soon as possible to meet and discuss how we can help you
