Why work with us

Our VC Partners value the hands-on, consultative approach we take with their Founders. Each Paro engagement begins with a complimentary 30-45 minute financial diagnostic to truly understand a portfolio company’s specific needs. Why? Because there is no such thing as a cookie-cutter finance and account solution:

  • The initial consultation enables us to ensure that companies are matched with the right person or fractional team to execute the specific work.
  • Higher-ROI option. Rather than the traditional way of spending the entire budget on one CFO or VP Finance who does everything from accounting to strategy, Paro can help you build a fractional TEAM of experts with individual strengths specific to each tash. It does not make sense to pay CFO rates for bookkeeping.
  • Paro allows you to increase/decrease bandwidth to ensure your talent is always working at full capacity.
  • Paro takes full-ownership of the vetting and recruitment process, leaving your team to focus on high-return, core competencies.
  • Dedicated support. When you work with Paro, you will have a dedicated project manager who will work with you and your financial expert to ensure that your engagement is successful.
