What is a CFO?

A CFO, or Chief Financial Officer, is a senior executive responsible for managing the financial actions of a business. The CFO's duties include tracking cash flow, financial planning, analyzing the company's financial strengths and weaknesses, and proposing corrective actions.

The CFO plays a crucial role in shaping company strategy, making financial decisions, and ensuring the company's financial reports are accurate and completed in a timely manner. They work closely with other senior executives and play a key role in a company's overall success. In a startup, the CFO may also be involved in fundraising, budgeting, and financial forecasting. Their role can be critical in navigating the complexities of rapid growth, providing the financial insights necessary to guide strategic decisions.
