Board Level

Virtual FD and CFO support for your tech business

As your tech business is growing, there will come a time when you need a shoulder to lean on, or someone new who realises your vision for becoming more agile and thriving.

That support can come in the form of a CFO, more commonly known as a Virtual FD. That person is ideal if your business needs high-calibre strategic support, effectively taking responsibility for managing your end-to-end accounting function.

That’s exactly what Board Level does. If you’re looking for focus and change, and you’re ready to step it up a notch, Board Level gives you that representation and guidance to make solid business decisions going forward. Often, you’re ready for this level of support when you fall into one or more of these categories:

You’re spending too much time dealing with financial decisions, instead of leading your business.

You want accountability for your financial targets and future goals of the business.

You’ve grown at a rapid fast and need forecasting in place to enable sourcing of cash.
