About us

A community with helpful resources for CFOs 
and their teams.

What is CFO Connect?

The go-to resource hub for tech-savvy CFOs in fast-growing companies

CFO Connect lets successful, modern financial leaders identify and learn from each other. It includes a series of in-person events for you to share best practices, give recommendations, discuss difficulties in the workplace, and have a network to rely on. You'll also find relevant content, and be able to connect with other finance professionals.

Why should I attend?

A great opportunity

Learn more about your job and exchange with peers in an informal meet-up. Each session is led by two finance experts who address a specific topic. Topics range from the tech tools of the modern CFO, to the digital transformation of finance, or even how to open a new office. No waffle; no filters.

You'll come away with advice, tools, and ideas that you can apply directly within your own company. And you'll get to meet other financial leaders who've faced similar challenges.
