Most startups try to stay lean, so the question of whether to bring on a chief financial officer may be a vexing one.
Beyond the decision to create a C-level position, even the role of a CFO at a startup can be different than a larger business with shareholders.
On Tuesday, April 11, a trio of finance experts from Baltimore’s tech community will help it all make sense.
BioBuzz is hosting “Startup CFO” at IMET’s Harbor Launch incubator.
The free event features a panel discussion, moderated by Ken Malone of Early Charm Ventures. Panelists include:

  • Ryan McQueeney, CFO of RedOwl, the Federal Hill-based cybersecurity company focusing on insider threats
  • Eileen O’Rourke, CFO of the Abell Foundation, which invested in tech companies such as Pixelligent and Vasoptic Medical, among others
  • Steve Dubin, Principal of SDA Ventures, and chairman of lipid product supplier Enzymotec Ltd.
