fractional plans for startups

it's never too
early to build a
solid foundation

as a startup, every decision becomes part of your company's DNA. that's why we've made it easy for startups to partner with tension early, with flexible plans that work for you

startups need
to be running in the right direction

or you're already lost.

As you build your startup brick-by-brick, every decision determines the stability and longevity of your foundation -- or its weakness. Each choice could mean the difference between focussing on disrupting an industry, or failure.

That's why it's never too early to get the right advice and expertise for your startup. A pinch of early insight can save a ton of refactoring later. To help you get access to expertise early, we've created plans just for you, regardless of stage, funding or runway.
