See What Our Other Clients Have to Say
What makes an ideal airCFO client?
airCFO is for fast-growing startups who want to maintain a best-in-class back-office as they scale. For those startups able and willing to invest in their back office, we’ll be the best match for price and total value.
airCFO is best suited for startups looking for a long-term partner and willing to hand over some level of ownership and responsibility for your company’s back office. We can build, manage and own from the simple to the complex; from bookkeeping to fractional-CFO duties.
An ideal client has a budget of at least $1000/mo and is willing to invest more in the finance function as the company scales. We support most of our clients from day one through exit.
How does it work?
Based on needs we identify, we will partner your startup with one or more dedicated team members in your area(s) of need (i.e. accounting, financial advisory, tax and soon-to-be People Operations/HR).
Our team will have regular defined duties (e.g. weekly, monthly or annually) and you will also be able to scale up our hours as needed for any projects that come up during the year.
We don’t require long-term contracts, and we won’t put you on proprietary systems or software.
How long does it take to get started?
This depends on how much clean-up work is involved. If there is no material cleanup, most clients are materially through onboarding and will have their first deliverable from airCFO within 30 days from our onboarding call.
If there is a material clean up project such as going backward and cleaning up prior years, we will need more information.
What does it cost?
Our clients have a budget of at least $1000/month for airCFO, and most of our clients fall somewhere between $1,000 and $3,000 per month.
What commitment is required?
We request that you're looking for a long-term accounting and financial services solution when considering airCFO. Most of our clients work with us for 2-3+ years until they outgrow an outsourced solution and need to hire an in-house team.
