Change Makers Presents

Modernisation Mission

Virtual, Private Panel Discussion


Tuesday 23rd January


11:00 – 12:00 GMT

“In response to constant change, the vast majority of CFOs are relying on technology investments to expedite transformation.”

– Gartner 2023

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?


Senior finance decision-makers such as CFOs, Financial Directors and Heads of Finance within high velocity organisations. This discussion will be valuable to you if you’re looking to modernise your finance function and ensure your organisation is ready for 2024. 


Attendance is capped to ensure every participant is able to contribute. The meeting is only open to invited participants or those who have been referred by a colleague or our partner, Tipalti.

We’re committed to supporting our society and environment. When you attend a Change Makers Club event, we pledge to neutralise your carbon footprint. To offset your travel or energy usage we will plant a tree via One Tree Planted. Once mature, the average tree has a net absorption of 30 kg of CO2 per year, which equates to 227 miles of travel by car or 96 hours of office usage. You can see our maths here.
