GrowCFO is a global community comprising thousands of active entrepreneurial CFOs, finance leaders and senior finance professionals.
Our primary objective is to provide you with the knowledge, network and personal development required for you to enjoy a thriving finance leader career.
Membership is free and is strictly limited to existing CFOs and future finance leaders of qualifying entrepreneurial businesses.
GrowCFO has been built in response to the huge number of requests for an independent collaborative networking portal, which enhances relevance to our members by having separate peer groups for different business categories.
Being a finance leader in a dynamic business can be an incredibly challenging and lonely role. You continually encounter a huge range of unpredictable urgent tasks, with minimal available resources and a complete lack of guidance.
You have probably never been trained to perform your role as there are no CFO qualifications and most people struggle to identify a proper ongoing development programme.
It can be incredibly hard for a finance leader to find the time and opportunity to build a proper support network amongst your peer group; especially given that most finance leader networks and events are created by organisations who are primarily trying to sell their products and services to you.
Our GrowCFO portal provides a huge range of community-generated and expert content to support you within your role. We also make it incredibly easy for you to connect with your most relevant CFO peer group to solve your problems and seize your opportunities by debating hot topics, sharing knowledge of best practice and answering one another’s questions.
Senior finance professionals face a number of challenges to progress into CFO roles due to a lack of experience and a competitive field of candidates for each job application. GrowCFO provides you with a free “Future CFOs programme” to help develop your skills and bridge your knowledge or experience gaps, through specialist coaching, expert content, role models, mentoring and individual career advice.
Our GrowCFO Executive Advisory Board comprises of a number of experienced CFOs across a range of companies to ensure that everything we develop is as helpful to our membership community as possible. We constantly seek feedback from our members and we will positively embrace any new ideas to future enhance our offerings to you.
GrowCFO’s active membership supports one another through engaging peer group collaboration and feedback across the following sub-group communities: CFOs of owner-managed companies, capital-backed businesses, private equity portfolio companies, family offices and AIM-listed entities; plus networks for female finance leaders and future CFOs.
Membership includes invitations to our regular CFO events and seminars, which mainly focus on peer group networking, combined with a mixture of career development and technical learning.
GrowCFO membership gives CFOs and future finance leaders full access to our searchable archives of expert blogs, sponsored technical content, members’ postings and Q&A forum web chats, enabling our membership to improve their effectiveness and further their careers with easy access to relevant information and peer group support.
GrowCFO will also provide our members with new career opportunities, for example our future jobs board of available CFO roles, which can be easily filtered into our peer group categories in order to quickly find the relevant job opportunities that suit your next desired role.
Please note that any active advisors, recruiters or investors may not join GrowCFO without prior approval to strategically support our membership community.
Stuart Trood, Senior Finance Leader:
“The GrowCFO portal is a fantastic support network for finance leaders, with surprisingly high levels of active engagement. The technology is slick and the Mighty Networks app provides a really good user experience. I have been really impressed by the quality of the content, webinars and courses, plus the willingness of both members and experts to help the business community.”
Ed Case, Portfolio CFO:
“I have been really impressed by the amount of activity taking place within the GrowCFO portal and by the consistently high levels of engagement across the community. So many members have already shared top tips and are providing valuable support to other finance leaders. I particularly like the weekly GrowCFO “Situation Room”, which brings together finance leaders via a Zoom video call to share ideas and debate hot topics to help one another.”
Roger Tattershall, Finance Leader:
