EDGE works closely with startups to provide financial guidance ranging from day to day accounting needs to CFO advisory services. As all entrepreneurs know, startup CEO’s are running in multiple directions and most need the CFO advisory expertise that EDGE provides. As an EDGE client, we expect you to use us as a sounding board and want you to contact us if you have any questions, no matter how big or small. We pride ourselves on building a relationship with all our clients and strive to help them achieve their goals.
Most pre-revenue or BETA stage startups look to EDGE for CFO advisory services, which usually include financial models for 3 – 5 years that can be used while looking for financing or to present to the Board.
Revenue generating companies will not only engage EDGE for CFO advisory services, but we will also provide the day to day accounting, general ledger maintenance, monthly close procedure and monthly management reporting preparation.
We realize the constraints of startups (both pre and post funding) and consider ourselves start-up friendly, which is evident in our billing policies. We offer various billing scenarios from hourly to monthly retainers, all based on what is best for the client. Most early stage startups will see ebbs and flows in their needs and like to be billed hourly. More stable and funded startups that have a determinable monthly need may chose a monthly retainer.
