The Accounting and Finance Team for Funded Startups

Companies raising venture capital require professional books and specialized financial advice. Because Kruze Consulting only works with funded startups, we know what numbers and advice you and your investors need.

Startups with VC funding need processes and systems to regularly report on the company’s financial position. Kruze produces Monthly Financials, Burn Rate Analysis, Cash Runway Analysis, Budget to Actuals and Variance Reports that are perfect for venture capital partners and board meetings. Startup founders who have raised capital must have the strategic financial skills to carefully manage burn, growth, headcount and more. And founders need to be ready to raise the next round of capital when the time comes.

Kruze Consulting’s clients have raised over half a billion dollars in funding in the past 12 months alone, so we know what it takes to be ready for the next round. From the first day of our White Glove Onboarding Experience, we work to deliver accurate financial statements and to begin creating a due diligence folder where, together, we can retain important information that you’ll need during the next venture capital round’s due diligence. Startups should have rock solid financials and their diligence materials prepped before a VC meeting ever occurs. Fundraising moves incredibly fast and if you appear unprepared to the VC partner, it will affect your valuation and total capital raised. Work with Kruze, be prepared.

Custom tailored dashboards can be provided weekly or monthly, depending on your preference and plan. Founders are often so busy building their company that they don’t have time to take care of their finances. Traditionally, these companies have had to work with a basket of people to get their work done, including bookkeepers, accountants, AP clerks, CFOs, consultants, and tax accountants. At Kruze Consulting, our founders have one point person, saving time and money.

We're huge fans of Vanessa and the folks at Kruze Consulting. They set up our books, finances, and other operations, and are constantly organized and on top of things. As a startup, you have to focus on your product and customers, and Kruze takes care of everything else (which is a massive sigh of relief). I highly highly highly recommend working with Vanessa and her team.

Avochato has been growing rapidly in the past year – in fact, too quickly for us to keep up with books, taxes, and budgeting for growth. Partnering with Kruze Consulting has been fantastic to manage, track, and analyze our finances while we continue focusing on building our customer base. Kruze’s team knows what startups need.

Kruze Consulting is the perfect Accounting, Finance and Tax partner for Los Angeles Startups. Kruze delivers exceptional monthly reporting and financial projections. When we need help with benefits or payroll, Kruze solves our problems. Kruze does our taxes for a fraction of what previous accountants have charged. Thank you Kruze for being a great partner.

Being a repeat tech entrepreneur, I know how challenging it is to find the ideal CFO - not only is it often expensive to find the right one, but CFOs who combine expertise with scrappiness, market vision and perspective with detail orientation and 'roll up your sleeves' execution is near impossible for an early stage company. So I've been thrilled to work with Kruze Consulting, who not only provide all the ideal characteristics of a top-tier tech CFO, but also live and breathe entrepreneurship themselves. I've known Scott and Vanessa for many years and their deep personal integrity and strong reputation in the industry and made it an easy decision to work with them again.

NIH, NSF, and SBIR grant compliance can add a lot of overhead for a start-up. The Kruze team makes it easy, so we can spend our time growing the business instead of shoveling paperwork.

As a startup, it’s incredibly important to keep track of where our money is coming from and where it’s being spent. Kruze Consulting really helps keep our books and taxes in order so that we can focus on the core business. Extremely responsive and very professional, the accountants at Kruze Consulting are a pleasure to work with. We’d highly recommend their services.
