Would you like financial leadership without the cost of a finance executive? To lift your team and boost performance? And your team financial savviness? To provide advice and guidance in all aspects of managing and growing a business?
Financial management goes hands-in-glove with all strategic, commercial and operational activities in all aspects of your business. Sound financial management is critically needed but painfully lacking for startups and growing businesses, which is one the of the top reasons for business failures at startup and critical transitions.
Strong financial management has been out of reach for small businesses as it is simply cost prohibitive. Many businesses carry on without a financial compass – which a bit is like flying with one wing, floundering at the whims of chances. Other financially savvy entrepreneurs try to take on the task themselves, just to find their focus and energy detracted from their main mission and priorities, and ultimately feel overwhelmed and dejected.

Frequently Asked Questions
What is the minimum commitment for a CFO engagement?
It can be as little as 1 day per month or per quarter.
Is the minimum a fixed commitment regardless of actual usage?
The minimum is mainly for limiting your commitment while giving you access to the fixed fee structure, which is significantly lower than the on-demand rate. It does not restrict your access – we are here to help wherever help is needed.
What happens to the unders and overs of usage?
We bill at the net time it takes for each activities. You will get a summary of actual usage at the end of each billing period. Any unused time from the minimum commitment are rolled forward. Excess usage will be billed at the end of the billing period.
What happens when I have a requirement outside the agreed scope?
We will be glad to support any additional requirements. As always, we will agree on the scope of work and fee before commencing service activities. We strive to provide clarity and certainty of cost as far as possible.
