Interim CFO

WHAT DOES AN INTERIM CFO MEAN?

Every business needs someone that can steer it in the right direction from a strategic viewpoint. It needs a strong and powerful leadership whether it’s the CEO, COO or CFO. In most cases, startups or fairly smaller companies do not have the funds or the need to hire a full-time CFO. Or they simply cannot find the right fit! This is where ONS comes in.
We provide our CFOaaS as an on-going support to tackle finance-related challenges (like KPI/metrics, FP&A, fundraising, growth planning and budgeting) that further help in decision-making. Think of it as a flexible partnership between us and your company. We give you the necessary financial know-how, direction, strategic leadership and decades of relevant experience to leverage as per your requirements and convenience.
As an interim CFO, we no longer work as an outsider and become a part of your family - your business. We take a leadership position and take it as seriously as a founder. Which is why we are very selective of the companies we choose to be a C-level executive at. After all, it is a bilateral relationship!
