Start-ups are scrappy. Rightfully so because that “whatever it takes” attitude is crucial to success. In this business stage, it is easy to overlook the importance of establishing internal financial discipline from the get-go. Or maybe it just seems impossible since hiring your own CFO is currently out of reach. Either way, when you don’t prioritize  financial discipline, you are limiting your growth potential.

What if you could keep the start-up attitude but adopt the financial practices of a much larger, well-oiled company?

What if you could bring in business without every new client or project wreaking havoc on your internal operations?

Vanreusel Ventures has developed a due diligence process to quickly assess how well a company sets itself up for future growth. We take that assessment and use it to inform CEOs of any operational pitfalls and the best ways to address them. Scale by Numbers is a 3-month engagement with our experienced financial analysts and CFO. It will give you the financial awareness essential to launching growth effectively

This accelerator program has successfully helped many companies transition away from ad-hoc financial management. It sends young companies on their way toward instituting a more sophisticated system that is transparent, organized, and, most importantly, effective in managing growth. 

For example, Scale by Numbers enabled Integrate Health to bring previously outsourced financial services in-house when increased funding changed the demand for financial data and reporting.

What other Scale by Numbers clients have to say

“At the beginning of the exercise we were 80% committed to the expansion into Mexico but the work performed by Vanreusel Ventures highlighted a poorer risk/reward outcome than we anticipated. Their financial modelling analysed a fairly complex situation in a very simple, easy to understand manner and they added further value by highlighting specific issues that investors would focus on.” Colin Phillips / CEO & Founder / Smiley Kids
“Working with James’ people, we were able to tackle key questions that enabled our organization to lay a strong foundation for financial management. Their scorecard was very helpful and their advising on core components, such as when to bring accounting functions in-house, proved deeply valuable. Their support has enabled our team to feel confident in the strength of our finance operations.” Jennifer Schechter / CEO / Integrate Health

“I’ve had a great experience working with James. In under six months, we’ve gotten to know each other really well and that’s down to him being open and being available to talk through both how he operates as Interim CFO at Planet and in his own company. From both sides of the equation that I’ve experienced, I think very highly of him. I think he is definitely one with high integrity, never goes back on his word and his follow up has always been on point. I completely trust his skill sets in terms of working with companies across different stages and the experience I’ve had with him on a later stage company shows that he’s got some breadth – it’s not just a small series A company where he’d be tapped in, he can work with companies that are generating ten, twenty, thirty million in revenue.”

“Honestly I put James up there in the top 1% of the CFOs that I’ve worked with. I think James is absolutely fantastic at understanding the numbers, understanding the process, understanding the business, and then being that thought partner for the CEO, that can sit in the room and participate in a conversation and bring a perspective that others don’t have. And that is absolutely huge.”

“James helped Planet leading several major initiatives to reduce expenses, raise finances and build sales models. He succeeded very well in these. Furthermore I really enjoyed working with James. I’d highly recommend James to anyone who needs CFO services similar to our needs.”
