CFO Services

 

Since 2000, we have been providing CFO services to early stage, venture capital-backed companies, and rapidly growing companies. Our team can fill a need at the right time for a fraction of the cost of a full time CFO / controller.  While the needs of a CFO will change over time, the early stage company will require this expertise to help navigate through certain strategic decisions that will certainly have a future impact as the company scales. We are intimately familiar with the unique needs of these developing companies.  The TJ Edwards Group is able to build processes and cost effective systems, and constantly adapting to our client's changing needs through the growth cycle. When the time is right, we can seamlessly transition the client to a full time resource.

 

We strive to become an integral part of the management team, and take pride in our ability to connect with the CEO and team as well as investors alike.

 

Tactically speaking, we place emphasis on cash flow management, forecasting and budget monitoring.  We are expert at forecasting and assisting in the determination of the Key Performance Indicators (KPIs) of the business.  We utilize our proprietary Dashboards to measurement trends and performance.
