 CFO Bootcamp

 February 21, 2013
**Networking to follow!**


Emerging growth businesses are running fast to achieve their goals.  An experienced CFO, even on an interim-basis, can create enormous value including spearheading a capital raise, being a strategic executive partner, and serving as cash flow watchdog.  Additionally, an experienced CFO wears many hats ensuring that key activities from hiring to lawyers to customers to investors are all properly managed.  These are just a few topics we’ll cover in the CFO Boot Camp :

  • What are the expectations of a quality CFO?
  • When do I hire a CFO and how do I find this person?
  • What is the best approach to properly capitalizing my company?
  •  How much equity should I give away and how do I set the valuation?
  • What do I need to prepare for prospective investors?
  • How do I present financial and non-financial data?
  •  How can I leverage the relationship with my new investors?
