Founding teams are usually a group of product designers, engineers and marketers. Finance-related strategy, along with bookkeeping, accounting, reporting, and other back-office tasks are often distant afterthoughts, but they are essential for a young operation to stay funded and grow at top speed. The benefits of utilizing CFO-level wisdom and sound financial systems from day one are numerous:
With a young company, every penny counts, and the “cap table” is sacred. Outsourcing CFO, accounting, and HR functions makes good sense for startups that want the advantages of mature financial structures, while keeping the monthly burn-rate in check. Outsourcing delivers better service for less money.
By outsourcing back office financial and HR functions to the experienced team at KCG, our clients wisely get to invest more of their expensive early-stage capital in real value-generating assets and avoid the draining expense of building corporate infrastructures internally.
Keating Consulting Group provides proven financial infrastructures and operational systems that enable our clients to focus on what they do best - creating real value, building great products and services, and growing their businesses quickly and correctly. Our experts become an integral part of the team - designing, building, and maintaining systems that provide investor confidence and keeps things running smoothly.
You grow the dream. We'll take care of the other stuff.
While the majority of Keating's interim CFO clients are based in Bay Area and Silicon Valley communities - including Campbell, Cupertino, Emeryville, Foster City, Los Altos, Los Gatos, Menlo Park, Mountain View, Oakland, Palo Alto, Redwood City, San Francisco, San Jose, San Mateo, Santa Clara, and Sunnyvale - we also serve clients outside of the Valley. For several, we act as their Bay Area presence/office.
