Accounting, Part 2: When Should a Startup Hire a CFO?

In our mini-series on accounting so far, we have covered:

  • Where to begin in accounting
  • Tips on hiring
  • Why not to do accounting on your own

In the first video of the series, we talked specifically about the bookkeeping support that you need for your early-stage consulting startup.

In this video, we discuss the right time for you to hire a full-time or fractional CFO to support more advanced financial planning and strategy.

You may have to pay a little bit of a premium for the more advanced support, but the investment can free up your skills and headspace to focus on growing the company.
