Who We Are
If you want to create lasting solutions to big problems then we’re like you. Building a product and early user-base is a good start – but now you need to scale your business. This requires a level of financial horsepower and attention neither you, your co-founder nor bookkeeper can realistically provide.
Yet, hiring and managing a full-service finance department is costly. Lean enterprises can’t afford a full-time CFO, so they hire an accountant and hope for the best… rinse… and repeat. SoPro offers a better way, providing part-time CFO, Controller, and accountant inputs, in the right proportions as you grow.
What We Do
By combining state-of-the-art software, accredited accountants, and a fractional share of experienced Controllers and CFOs, SoPro helps your company get the full range of financial services needed to scale. And, as you grow, SoPro will right-size your finance team by increasing the portion of each expert you need.
We retool your back office, adopting cloud-based software and mobile apps that take your accounting online and turn it entirely paperless.
You upload information using streamlined processes and we’ll enter all transactions, make journal entries, reconcile accounts, and much more.
We follow best practices you might not otherwise afford – e.g., disciplined month-end close, internal controls, and exacting accounting principles.
Why You Need Us
If you have a full-time bookkeeper or more managing all of your needs then you’re spending too much on transaction processing and not enough on financial management. SoPro will correct this imbalance without increasing your fixed costs. You’ll get better accounting as well as financial leadership needed to drive strategic growth.

What Keeps you Awake?
No more second-guessing financials. No delays or excuses. Your financial statements will be accurate and on time.
Most companies don’t have an unlimited runway, which is why we help you manage your business and burn rate through rigorous forecasting.
Reduce your exposure to fraud and errors with separation of duties, risk management, and multiple sets of eyes on your books.
We help ensure taxes and registrations are filed, along with related forms needed to keep the feds and other authorities happy.
We’re who we say we are – not a bunch of accountants posing as CFOs, MBA’s pretending to be CPAs. Every member of our team is hands-on and expert in their role. We’re tested. We’ve done this before. And we want to help you get it right.
The highest uses of your CFO’s talents are forward-facing. A truly strategic CFO is your extra set of eyes on the road ahead – tracking the ever-evolving business model, financial risks, and capital needs – anything that can significantly impact your growth and profitability.
Think of the Controller as the owner of a database, your accounting software. As the most senior accountant, s/he controls everything that goes into and is reported out of that system. And since accounting is primarily backward-facing, so too is the Controller.
With accounting, there’s much more than meets the eye. Numerous processes must be completed to confirm each account balance is correct. Without your accountants’ discipline and Controller’s oversight, you would not have numbers you can rely upon.
Since the SoPro team assigned to you is fractional by design, we take extra care to ensure your needs are fully covered. That’s the role of the Account Manager. S/he works cross-functionally to ensure routine accounting, compliance, and reporting are accurate and on-time.
