Why should we consider hiring someone for finance and account work?
Running a business is hard. Funding it is really hard. And neither can be done well without a strong financial backbone. Having a finance professional stand up a reliable accounting and reporting system and watching that part of the shop on a regular basis frees you up to focus on the rest of the business. And accurate, high quality analysis drives better decisions around spend, runway, pricing, etc. Time is everything. Don’t waste it closing the books.
I already have a bookkeeper; why do I need CPM?
Bookkeepers are great for pre-Seed companies that want to get organized, pay their bills on time and see how much cash is coming in and going out. But as your business evolves — especially as you start to interact with investors for Seed rounds and above — the caliber of your analysis needs to move from cash-basis accounting to accrual based reporting that produces actionable business intelligence. You need it to run the business and investors expect it during diligence.
How does pricing work?
All plans are based on an annual subscription model with fees billed monthly. We offer a 10% discount to clients who pay the full annual cost up front.
Do you charge any up front fees?
Yes. We charge a one-time onboarding fee of $1,500. This covers historical cleanup,general ledger review and redesign if necessary and onboarding to best-in-class technology tools. This is typically complete in the first few weeks.
What kind of support can I expect?
Unlike most of our competitors, we don’t limit the amount of time you can reach out to any of our team members. Our goal is to be a true partner and we don’t think partners should be watching the clock.
