“In response to constant change, the vast majority of CFOs are relying on technology investments to expedite transformation.”
2023 was uniquely challenging for VC backed businesses with many still feeling the effects of the pandemic, preparing for recession, and navigating a 50% decline in funding [Forbes, 2023]. But as green shoots in the economy surface, 2024’s forecast looks better. With the quantity of funding rounds having increased dramatically in recent months, CFOs must ensure they’re ready.
But time is not on your side and many still think future proofing is a tomorrow problem. Even after years of readily available technologies, 76% of finance executives are still bogged down with manual tasks forcing their attention on the short-term rather than focusing on the bigger picture [Tipalti, 2023]. Investors are looking to see how efficiently your business operates, and manual processes are a big obstacle to securing favourable terms.
Now is the time to act and prove your business is worthy of further funding. How will you get the people, processes, and technology in place to drive operational excellence and in turn secure the trust of your investors?
