Connecting startups with freelance CFOs to accomplish great things.

About Us

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

Why siliconCFO

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

How We Make Money

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

How Much Do Fractional CFOs Through SiliconCFO Cost?

The cost of a Fractional CFO can be anywhere from Free to $10k per month, but the average is around $3k to $5k 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 $80 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 $30 per hour. On the other hand, CFOs who are incredibly experienced and efficient can charge up to $500 per hour.
