A truly holistic approach to the scale-up ecosystem

The Tech & High Growth team at Cooper Parry services all your business needs as you scale – audit, tax, due diligence, R&D, share options, internationalisation, the list goes on. We know that most accountancy firms can support you in these areas, what’s unique about this team is our holistic approach.

One team, with expertise across all service lines, only working with businesses in the high growth ecosystem.

We’re yet to come across a firm that’s structured in the same way and yet we speak to finance leads and CFOs on a daily basis about the difficulties of trying to work with different teams to receive specialist, pragmatic advice.

It’s why Head of THG, Steve Leith and Head of THG Tax, James Peck built the team that is now over 100 strong. Working with businesses from seed to unicorn to exit.

Below is a flavour of how we work with scale-ups across the UK:

Experience and expertise

As you scale, you need agile advice from people who understand your challenges. We will take the time to get to know you, your team and what you’re trying to achieve. It’s about having a likeminded sounding board – one that you can directly contact for fast responses and timely advice.

If you’re preparing for the next round of funding, we got you. Helping to ensure your businesses is diligence ready – our team are here to prep you for the scrutiny of venture capitalists. We work with many of the key players in the VC space and understand what they’re looking for.

Thinking about overseas expansion? We have in-house experts with the answers and access to a global network of support to unlock technically sound, international advice.

It’s all about taking an inclusive approach that’s focussed on a making sure your future activity is red flag free.

Connected to the ecosystem

We partner with the people that matter, to deliver content and support, in accessible ways. We’re big believers in paying it forward and share our insight as far and wide as we can. We love this ecosystem and care about its ability to thrive – anything we can do help that goal, is a big yes from us.

Founders Forum, Tech Nation, StartUp CFO, Plexal, HSBC Innovation Banking, Capsule Insurance… just some of the names we partner with.

We recognise that scaling businesses are all at different stages of the journey, and have content and event streams for each of these communities:

Our TechCFO community resonates strongly with the scaleup and later stage audience. We had over 180 senior finance leads on the 24th level of The Shard at our summit in summer of 2023, with the likes of Jake Humphrey from The High Performance podcast delivering the key note.

We are determined to continue to grow this community with the summit set to be bigger and better in 2024.

This is supported by our CFO dinners which focus on different verticals within the ecosystem – examples include Deeptech, Fintech, Consumer and Enterprise Software. Coupled with multiple educational webinar that take places throughout the year.

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!”

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.”
