FAQ – When and why do I need a Startup CFO?

Why do I need controlling and a financial plan? I already know the account balance!

If you don’t have your finances under control, you’re flying in the dark! Only controlling shows us whether our products are profitable and what the cost structure looks like. Without a financial plan, you can never plausibly explain to investors or banks what you need the money for.

Startup CFO: How do we support company growth?

The Startup CFO as a Service relieves the founding team “on demand” and serves as an important sparring partner for figures and KPIs. With our support, finances become the basis for decision-making in the company.

Startup CFO: How do we support you with fundraising and investor relations?

We support you with financial planning for the pitch deck or business plan, prepare you for meetings with investors or accompany you to them. Once financing has been secured, we ensure an orderly flow of information through efficient investor relations.

Why should I deal with the business model? Iallready have a great product!

Business model development as a method makes it possible to align the company concept with the customer and their needs As your advisor and sparring partner, we support you in aligning your company with customer added value so that you don’t fall into the trap of product self-indulgence.

What is the connection between the business model and financial planning?

The business model is a qualitative representation of the logic according to which a company is to be built. The financial plan is the quantification or “translation” of the business model into figures and thus the first reality check of the viability of a business idea.

How expensive are startup CFO services?

Thanks to our experience from numerous projects and our ‘as a service’ approach, we bridge the gap to a full-time CFO in a cost-efficient manner. In addition, we are BAFA-listed as consultants, which means that many of the services we offer are eligible for 50-80% funding.

The initial consultation is free of charge in any case!
