Finance Matters has been a great resource for me and my company in our start-up phase. They have become valued advisors on my team, bringing a vast amount of knowledge of the entertainment industry and how start-ups operate. I recommend any new company to add a member from Finance Matters to your team to help you steer around the various issues a company will face in its early years.
Jerrica Cleland – CEO 21 Inc.
Darren’s experience with our company and knowledge of the industry was a tremendous help at a time when we needed it most. We initially contracted Finance Matters to help on specific projects, but Darren’s role has evolved into re-joining the company as its CFO all be it on a part-time basis. He was instrumental in getting our company turned around and has restructured our finance department such that we have a full-time controller and staff, but only have him as on a part-time contract. This has been an invaluable relationship for Bardel.
Delna Bhesania – CEO Bardel Entertainment Inc.
Finance Matters was a great resource for the project work we has such as cost analysis and revenue forecasting. They were able to jump right in and tackle the tasks at hand. Their experience in the software/technology industry and with public companies was a great help while we were transitioning the company. I will continue to use them as a valued resource as we take the company to its next stage of its evolution.
Myles McGovern – CEO Immersive Media Corp (IMC.V)
We contacted Finance Matters when we needed help getting our accounting caught up for a financing we were entering into. They possessed the required knowledge of the entertainment industry and of the financing process. It has been great having a firm like Finance Matters at our disposal where a public accounting firm would have been way more expensive. We will continue to use them as our virtual finance department for help in managing the company.
Derik Murray – CEO Network Entertainment Inc.
The team at Finance Matters has been a great resource as we launched our product. They worked with me to create the models and business plan to raise the seed capital for my company. They were also there for us when we needed financial statements, for filing our first SRED tax credit claim, and help with the various day to day issues. Having them available to field my questions and help with financial issues we faced out of the gates was a tremendous help.
Jason Gray – CEO Pingify Network Inc.
We contracted Finance Matters to help us prepare a business plan to launch a number of MRI clinics across western Canada. They did an excellent job of researching the industry, preparing financial projections as well as the whole business plan. I would definitely recommend Finance Matters for any help needed in preparing the building blocks of a start-up enterprise.
I have been working with Darren for the better part of 10 years. Darren’s knowledge of the entertainment industry and the tax credit system as been immensely valuable to a small documentary company such as ours. He was able to get us a significant amount of tax credits from the government that we didn’t know existed. He is now a key member of my team to help me budget, finance and produce our shows. I highly recommend Darren and his team for any work in this manner.
Initially we hired Finance Matters to assist in the preparation of the financial models and to help prepare a business plan to attract investors. The relationship worked so well that we have continued to use them to help set up our finance department, accounting policies and assist in the administration of the company in the CFO role. Having the collective experience of the team at our disposal throughout our pre-commercialization period and as we are putting product on the shelves has been an incredible asset to the company and our management team.
Ian Toews – Founder/President Vampt Beverage Co.
I have relied on the help and advice of Finance Matters as my start-up evolved from a one person operation to the point where we are launching nationally. Having this type of experience and knowledge at my fingertips has allowed me to keep my finance department to a sole bookkeeper with the luxury of having a CFO a phone call away. The fact that we are in Winnipeg and they are in Kelowna has not been an issue. I highly recommend Finance Matters if you are looking to keep overhead low, without sacrificing talent.
