We need to find someone with finance/ops experience and are willing to offer equity, but we haven't been able to find someone available to make the kind of time commitment suitable for such an exchange, so now we're trying to find a CFO-in-Residence as an alternative. Our local accelerators don't have anyone in this capacity currently. Where are other sources to find a CFO-in-Residence?
Too many founders wing it when it comes to financials; they have no idea how to explain them to investors. In this course, we’ll teach you how to build a basic financial model; read financial statements; and understand cash flow, balance sheets, and income statements.

I would check out Nomad Financial, they have been built to provide financial services to start ups from bookkeeping all the way to CFO level services. A couple of the companies I have invested in are using them.

Hi there, I would recommend you check with David Douglass, he the managing partner for Tatum which is the largest firm in the US that offer interim and project basis CFOs. I would start with him so you can get an idea of what it is like working with a firm.  The other option is to find an individual who might be able to help. The benefits of working with a firm like Tatum includes: structure and support for the CFO to make sure he/she delivers valuable service.  You don't always get that from a single person.  It's important to find a qualified person as well, because your finances, reporting (to banks and investors) is key to business success.  Here is David's info.  Best of luck!

There are actually quite a few CFO consulting companies, such as CFO2go. Just search for them online or attend any networking event for entrepreneurs and they are generally there looking for new clients.
