How We Closed the CFO Position in a funded Agritech Startup

Finding the right talent for senior finance positions can be a daunting task, especially in a competitive market like Gurgaon. A funded agritech startup faced this very challenge when they needed a highly experienced professional for the CFO position. They required someone with over 15 years of industry experience to create frameworks and mentor junior team members. The search for such a specialized candidate was proving to be a significant challenge.

To tackle this daunting task, the startup turned to us, leveraging our extensive experience in finance recruitment. Over the past four years, our dedicated and specialized finance recruiter team has successfully closed over 100 senior finance positions across various startups, multinational corporations (MNCs), and consulting firms. This track record gave us deep insights into the specific skill sets, qualifications, and experience needed for high-level roles in the finance sector, including the agritech industry.

Our approach was multifaceted:

1. Understanding the Client’s Needs: We conducted in-depth discussions to fully understand the requirements and nuances of the CFO position.

2. Leveraging Our Network: Utilizing our extensive network of senior finance professionals to identify potential candidates who met the criteria.

3. Screening and Shortlisting: We implemented a rigorous screening process to shortlist candidates who not only had the requisite experience but also fit well with the startup’s culture and strategic goals.

4. Interview Coordination and Feedback: Coordinating interviews between the startup and the shortlisted candidates, and facilitating the feedback process to ensure a smooth selection.

Due to our expertise in finance recruitment and our systematic approach, we were able to close this challenging position in a timely manner. Our ability to understand the specific needs of the agritech industry and to source candidates who matched those needs precisely ensured a successful outcome.
