  • ABOUT

    Providing critical, cost-effective support.

    Overview

    Pacifico& provides cost-effective professional finance and accounting support, including CFO on-demand and bookkeeping services, to startup and growth stage companies. This approach helps entrepreneurs conserve cash while implementing important financial controls and discipline that drive scalability.

     

    I specialize in B2C and B2B business models across:

    • eCommmerce
    • Education Technology (EdTech)
    • Software-as-a-Service (SaaS)
    • Subscription Platforms
    • Tech-Enabled Services

    With finance, accounting, and fundraising experience spanning several startups (with very limited budgets), as well as international VC-backed and public technology companies, I understand what financial controls, procedures, and analyses need to be addressed – ultimately to maximize investor appetite and valuation.

     

    In addition to tactical expertise, I have access to a vast network of operators, consultants, investors, and specialized professionals who can help you overcome the challenges inherent in scaling a business.

    The Venture Capital Funding Continuum / Timeline

    The Venture Funding Continuum

    Why have I chosen to focus on startup and growth stage companies? Because such companies are predominantly focused on product and sales (as they should be!) and rarely have access to professional finance and accounting support – the company is too small / cash constrained to hire a full-time finance or accounting professional (let alone a CFO), but too far along to ignore the need to establish some sound financial structure and discipline.

  • EXPERIENCE

    A unique perspective. Leverage it.

    Mike Pacifico

    Advisor

    Founder, CFO, investment banker, investor, manager, consultant – my experience spans B2C and B2B business models across education (EdTech), software-as-a-service (SaaS), and eCommerce / consumer retail. My finance background is complemented by operating and strategy experience at both large public and growth stage / VC-backed technology companies – I understand drivers, KPIs, and customer lifecycles.

     

    Based in Miami after a decade in NYC, I hold an MBA from Columbia Business School (after which I founded a social media / eCommerce startup) and a BBA from Emory University.

    A Focus on High Growth Companies

    Pacifico& offers clients a unique perspective, having been on both sides of the fundraising table. Throughout my career, I have prepared investor decks, built models, advised, and/or privately invested in several tech-enabled companies. These are a few representative companies with which such experience was gained.
