"Without airCFO, we would have had a lot of difficulties in scaling up as our business became more complex. AirCFO was able to grow alongside us and deliver on its valued proposition consistently."
-John Kobs, CEO and Co-Founder, Apartment List
"At the beginning of a startup and for a very long time, if there's a lot of work but not enough to hire a full-time finance person, it usually falls on the CEO to do that work. That takes away from the mind space to grow the business which is supposed to be the CEO's main workflow. By using a fractional finance service, specifically airCFO, I was able to free a lot of mental space to go focus on growing the team and product."
-Bebe Kim, CEO & Co-Founder, Basis

"I've been working with airCFO for almost seven years and was introduced to airCFO by a friend and a founder who was a customer. When I met the folks of airCFO, I learned that I was able to get the perfect blend of a SaaS Solution and a real partner and advisor for building out the accounting and finance of TruSTAR. The best part of it is you really have this perfect blend of a technology solution that helps you close your books to do forecasting and projections."

How airCFO Was Instrumental in Startup FloatMe’s Debt Facility Raise
As CEO, Joshua Sanchez is responsible for the financial health, strategic vision, company culture, and building out a scalable leadership team for FloatMe. His job is to lead his colleagues in the company’s mission to empower everyone along their financial journey. Josh uses a “hands-on” approach to jumping on critical activities and giving attention to his team members.
"airCFO is very responsive, they're very flexible, and I find them to be knowledgeable about both accounting and finance. It allows me and my team to scale a lot more easily as opposed to worrying about hiring people myself and managing them myself. For a small startup like ours, we need that flexibility to be very nimble but also not burden the company with a lot of G&A (General and Administrative) and financial costs. So yes, I would highly recommend airCFO to other companies like us."
-Quincy Yang, CFO, Coffee Meets Bagel
