As a CEO, a year or two into your business, you’ll be wearing too many hats. Sales. Innovation. Growth. People issues. Customer Success. And more.
Chances are, you’re pulled in every direction, by investors, staff and customers.
So how do you cope if… to cap it all… you’re also juggling finance?
Even if you know your way around the finance system, your extra duties will kill momentum. Situation, urgent.
And if you’re new to finance – feeling your way through?
“URGENT” moves to “CRITICAL”.
You’ll be locked in a constant battle to plan for growth… manage investment… meet fundraising goals… without running out of cash or losing the confidence of the board.
It’s untenable. So if you expect the business to reach its full potential, there’s only one solution…
It needn’t be a full-time hire. If that’s a strain on the budget, or talent is thin on the ground, Vanreusel Ventures will bridge the gap. Placing a CFO with you part-time, working the hours you need, to steer you through the early phases of expansion.

In other words: prepare you for the day you recruit a full-time CFO – who can take over and scale the business, knowing we’ve laid the foundations.
We work with you in partnership. And if you’ve worked with a CFO service before, you’ll know how rare that is!
We don’t use the agency model, of pairing you with a freelance consultant and washing our hands of the whole affair. We’ve seen the damage that follows when no-one is taking ownership. So our CFOs work on staff, and work the Vanreusel way – following a proven system to maximise your results, with the full support of our analysts and peer review from the whole team.
And that’s just the technical aspect – there’s the personal edge too.
We don’t simply look at the numbers and hand you a cold set of recommendations. We get to know you and your team, your company values, your overarching mission…and work with you to deliver the plan in the most appropriate way.
That’s how we work. Not as a bolt-on, but as a key member of your team. So you get the loyalty and cultural fit of a full-time hire, with the flexible hours and deep expertise you’d expect from an agency.
