Is Graphite a fit for your startup?

Choosing an accounting firm for your company is a big decision. The following should determine if we’re the right partner for you.

What Stage Most of Our Clients Are in

We support our clients from seed all the way through their exits.

Early Stage

 Testing, prepping or launching your MVP in the market.

Gearing up to fundraise your first serious round of capital.

Need Help With:

Basic bookkeeping

Tax filings

Fundraising & diligence

Setting up payroll

Growth Stage

You’ve found product-market fit.

Preparing to scale.

Need Help With:

Ongoing accounting

Investor & board reporting

Building out scalable financial processes & infrastructure

Financial reporting to understand the economics of your business, and help preparing for future fundraising rounds

Scaling Stage

Your internal team has grown significantly.

You may now have an internal Controller, CFO or Accounting Manager.

Need Help With:

Support staff to help your finance lead handle volume and specific tasks

Or vice versa – you have an AP or a billing clerk but want to get them oversight and don’t have a budget for a FT Controller or finance lead

General Client Profile

Capitalized

VC backed, or well-capitalized by the founder(s), debt, etc. Although we do help a number of founders raise their initial rounds.

Product is In-Market

Currently in-market or gearing up to launch soon. We help many companies prep for launch or work through pivots to new business models.

SaaS, CPG, Tech, Web3 & Other

A SaaS, CPG, eComm, technology, Healthcare, FinTech, or Web3 startup, although we are industry agnostic.

Need More Than Just Bookkeeping

Fed up with poor low-service outsourced accounting support, and looking for a long-term, hands on and scalable operational accounting partner (although our SOWs are month-to-month, most of our engagements last for years and years).

One of the only true scalable & hands-on startup accounting firms

There are many basic bookkeeping firms out there, but very few operationally-focused startup accounting firms like us. Our business model focuses around high-touch and long-term engagements, where we take our clients from seed all the way through exit.

Challenges We Love

Cleaning up Your Books

Cleaning up your books so they are GAAP compliant and fundraise, audit & investor ready. Nothing is worse than going into diligence and finding out your financials need to be re worked. We prevent that.

Tech Stack, Systems & Process Setup

Using the best technology to create solid and scalable financial infrastructure for a startup. Think accounting software, revenue recognition, inventory management and more!

Facilitating an In-House Feel

Making an outsourced service feel like your in-house accounting team.

Fundraise & Dilligence Support

Supporting our clients through fundraises, pivots, acquisitions and all the other crazy things a startup will deal with.

Tax, Tax & Tax!

We love handling our clients taxes. From your corporate filings to R&D credit to 1099 filings and more, we handle the tax filings for the majority of our clients.

Strategic CFO Advisory

Ongoing strategic CFO support to help you plan for and hit your next inflection point. Each month, we provide our clients with a robust financial reporting package they use to steer their ship.

Graphite was quite literally the best value add service I have received from any investor. I can’t recommend them enough.
