How a CFO can guide you through your raise, from Seed to Series A
Growing a startup involves trial and error, with the journey from seed to Series A round being crucial. A seasoned CFO can help guide the startup through this journey. The seed round stabilizes the startup, with funding going towards product development, market research, and product-market fit. Seed round funding typically varies from $500,000 to $2 million, with valuation based on potential rather than track record. A CFO can help prevent unnecessary dilution of equity and communicate financial health to attract investors. The Series A round focuses on scaling operations, with funding ranging between $2 million and $15 million. Valuation is now based on tangible metrics such as revenues. A CFO can help negotiate valuation, ensure accurate financial records, and efficiently utilize funds while managing financial risks. In summary, a seasoned CFO is an indispensable ally in guiding a startup from seed to Series A rounds.
