MightyCFO is a management consulting firm focused on providing financial guidance, strategic planning, and tactical support to early stage startups and small businesses.
We believe that startups often lack the financial oversight and expertise needed to create sustainable business models, optimize fundraising, and drive value through capital efficiency.

We are passionate about small business and are here to reduce the rate of business failure.
Our mission is to cultivate startup success by working side by side with founders to build healthy businesses that deliver real value to the world.
