Services*


Silicon Valley CFO provides emerging technology companies with CFO level financial management and advisory services on an as needed, part-time basis. Most early stage venture funded companies are focused on matters core to the business such as R&D, marketing and distribution and do not want to invest in developing financial infrastructure. However, there are needs that must be met and establishing the proper financial framework early on saves time and money later on. By bringing on a professional part time CFO these organizations can rest assured that their financial strategy and compliance issues will be addressed.

Services range from the tactical, such as getting your financial infrastructure in place to addressing more strategic financial issues surrounding fundraising, business plans, business models and then everything in between.
