CFO-COO Services to Hardware Start ups

Service Provider



With 20 years in the Silicon Valley, I've been on leadership teams for innovative hardware companies in the WiFi, GPS, Bluetooth audio, Wellness/Health wearables, consumer IoT and digital imaging segments.

I now run a consulting firm that focuses on hardware startups, helping them scale to success. I've worked with over a dozen startups the past 3 years, ranging from crowdfunded businesses to companies that have raised Series A or B rounds with Tier 1 venture capital. I help my client companies scale systems and processes; implement supply chain; negotiate and implement go-to-market partnerships w e-tail and physical retail; implement backoffice processes including recruiting and HR, legal and contracts, accounting and finance, facilities and support. I advise the company's board, major investors and leadership team on the business model, key metrics and detailed strategy, and work on the detailed execution. I have raised venture debt, bank lines and facilities, angel equity and venture capital equity. I also help companies prepare for and execute a sale, with several of my hardware companies having a successful M&A transaction. I consult to larger companies on potential M&A transactions and assist them with due diligence of target companies.

I have worked with or consulted to over 20 hardware companies, ranging in size from a pre-revenue, 3 person startup to a $1.2 billion revenue, 800 person company and everything in-between. So I have seen every stage that a hardware company may encounter and successfully resolved issues, built the business to get the company to the next stage of growth.
