Connecting startups with fractional CFOs to accomplish great things.

About Us

We believe that fractional CFOs are the future for handling startup and SMB’s financial needs. SiliconCFO is a marketplace of fractional CFOs, enabling them to be freelancers while providing top talent to employers. We help startups and SMBs bring on a fractional CFO as a member of their team from an early stage to keep a handle on the company’s financials as they grow. 

Why SiliconCFO

The biggest difference between SiliconCFO and our competitors is that clients hire a fractional CFO, not a firm. Each employer adds a partner to their team and chooses that partner out of a large pool of options curated by us. When the fractional CFOs need a finance team, we provide support that scales. Our marketplace and support allow for startups to easily make an experienced finance hire while helping fractional CFOs get hired as freelancers.

How We Make Money

We make money when you hire a fractional CFO through us. We take a small percentage of what the fractional CFOs make in their first year working for a company, and nothing after that.

How Much Do Fractional CFOs Through SiliconCFO Cost?

The cost of a Fractional CFO can be anywhere from “Free” to $15k per month, but the average is between $3k to $6k per month. As you might expect, the monthly cost depends on a number of factors, such as hourly rate, complexity of tasks, and breadth of responsibilities you assign your Fractional CFO.

The typical hourly rate for a Fractional CFO is between $100 and $150 per hour. Most CFOs will charge within that range, but there are always outliers. CFOs outside the US, in countries with a lower cost of living, might charge as little as $50 per hour. On the other hand, CFOs who are incredibly experienced and efficient can charge up to $500 per hour.
