Connecting startups with part-time CFOs to accomplish great things.
SiliconCFO was started due to a pressing need many startup founders experience: they have substantial financial operations responsibilities and tasks, but most founders don’t have the time or skillset required to get them done. For the founders who get the work done, it is typically done reluctantly.
After we secured our first client and helped them grow, we started scaling our CFO-services to other startups. Now, we have pivoted to help part-time CFOs find work and manage their clients.
The best CFO solution for a startup or small business is always different depending on the company’s needs. Although we are an agency as well, we quickly shifted our focus for siliconCFO to be a marketplace of CFOs. This way, we can connect startups with the right CFO for their needs, rather than trying to provide the same solution to everyone.
