Connected to the ecosystem

Over the past few years we’ve partnered an array of key players in the ecosystem. Delivering content and events that serve a purpose – to provide accessible and relevant information to educate and elevate those in the tech and high growth space.

Real value comes through genuine connection and an open book approach. Many of our in person events focus on the personal and mental challenges faced by those scaling at speed. This is then coupled with topical and crucial updates on everything from getting ready for diligence to the growing number of R&D claims we’re seeing in the sector.

Below you can see a flavour of our partnerships and the clients we support…

By the very nature of how we’ve built this team, we get that it’s not one size fits all. Our content and events are built around three communities: The Finance Department, Venture CEO and TechCFO. Each one focused on providing curated support for different parts of the ecosystem.

The why

Head of THG, Steve Leith, explains why he built this team…

“After working for a corporate accountancy firm for many years I watched their interest in having a dedicated tech and high growth team decline. Not only was there a gap in the market for a team dedicated to this ecosystem, there was a need for it – VC backed businesses we’re either being serviced by teams that didn’t understand their journey or were being batted around between specialists trying to piece together the advice they required to scale.

So, when the pandemic hit in 2020, I found myself sat at home in front of a white board planning out how to build this team, I asked myself what a finance lead at a high growth business needs. And I’ve asked myself that question every day since as we’ve grown to a team of more than 100 in that short time.

For me it’s all about being a sounding board for every stage – helping to develop 100s of high growth specialists along the way, providing a platform for fulfilling careers and working with founders who are changing people’s lives with their ventures.”

Steve has built the team alongside a other key individuals who are equally as enthusiastic about the goal he envisaged 3 years ago.

REVIEWS

RAY, MAR 24

“Professional and timely service with a smile.”

STEPHEN, APR 24

“Team efficiently led by Zahib under the tutorage of Katie, focusing on the key issues early, rather than the routine chaf, whilst working effectively with our central team and local teams. NED’s like the comms, telling us the issues rather than maybe other advisors telling us how wonderful they are. I’ve just about got used to the colour scheme 😉 . Already recommended CP – says it all!”

JAMES, APR 24

“Good communication, proactive team.”

NATALIE, APR 24

CARL, APR 24

“We have excellent access to our audit partner. The audit team are professional and the assignment is well ran and to time. The quality of reports is great and everyone likes the way they are presented. We have tapped into other advisory services and found the support and advice excellent. Can’t think of any improvements needed.”
