I`m Chris Benjamin, the CEO of Chris Benjamin Consulting. After years of working as a controller and in technical accounting, I wanted more. I wanted to be able to work with several companies and help them solve their problems. Hence, the birth of my own consulting firm.
I focus on 3 services as a startup consultant:
Financial plans, Business Plans, Private Placement Memos. The technical, 1 time projects you need completed in order to move on to the next steps.
Part Time, contract CFO services. Once you launch, ongoing support as your virtual CFO. Use me as needed, and avoid having to hire a full time money person.
Raising venture capital. I use my contacts in the angel & vc worlds, present your company, and see if we can find your company the capital it needs to grow.
Partnering my expertise & drive to help out new and upcoming companies with your needs, we can accomplish amazing feats.
Hey everyone, just launched http://www.roguecfoblueprints.com - educational tools for entrepreneurs & startups, check it out! Lots of content & information about funding for your startup.
Chris B, Rogue CFO
Just updated my site with a bit more info and samples, and a video as well. If you are an entrepreneur trying to learn everything you can about raising funding for your startup, look no further.
It’s one thing to start a company and let everyone know you are looking for investment capital. It’s another to actually have the know how and tools to properly locate the capital you need.
If term sheets, financial models, Power Point presentations and more are all foreign to you, take a look at the link below to see what I’ve put together for the entrepreneurs out there.
Both the learning and the tools themselves, you can’t go wrong!

Depending on the stage your company
is at (seed, idea, capital raising, traction, etc), the CFO role will change
depending on the pressing needs of the company at the time. Learn more about how I help companies at all
of these stages, taking them above and beyond the next level of growth.

Chris Benjamin, Rogue CFO
Hi everyone, In my time in between CFO'ing for several startups, I like to take on project
work in the startup realm. Usually it's putting together term sheets,
valuations, financial analysis, etc. In the past though what I really enjoyed
most was helping a startup go from 0 to 100 by working with them to create an
investor quality full package - business plan, financial model, Powerpoint presentation
and 1-2 page executive summary. Something to benchmark your company against, as
well as something to demonstrate to potential investors as well as potential
partners & employees you are both serious about your endeavor and have a
solid, concrete plan of action. So I'm throwing my hat in the ring - if you are a small to mid sized growing
startup and need someone whose been around the block in the startup and
investor world for several years to jump in and lend a hand, send an email and
lets discuss. You can learn more about me and what I've done on my site: http://www.roguecfo.com , and
if you have a bit of time, check out some of my free resources on the media
page, as well as my free weekly podcast: http://roguecfo.podomatic.com - 10 to 20 minute audio show where I discuss various topics of interest to
entrepreneurs. A few FAQS - 1. I do not help in the capital raising process except for companies I'm
engaged with as ongoing CFO 2. Yes it does cost money to hire me as a CFO, no equity only or post funding
payments :) 3. Yes I know the definition of Rogue. If you appreciate the idea of a CFO who
bucks the normal conventions of a CFO who is only numbers-minded, comes on
board and makes a difference, and isn't your normal suit & tie CFO, then
you get it. If it's not your style, no worries just don't bother to email me
and let me know why you aren't interested. 4. Yes if you have materials already and just need someone to review them to
make sure they make the investor grade, happy to do that as well. Hope to hear from all those amazing, dynamic, world changing companies out
there! Chris Benjamin Rogue CFO firstname.lastname@example.org http://www.roguecfo.com
