  • Classic scenarios

    • • Time for your next round of funding.

      We have your systems, financials and business forecast prepared. You need an audit. You’re ready for it.

    • • Time to commercialize.

      You need to expand your systems to handle contract manufacturing. We handle it for you, quickly, efficiently and without drama.

    • • Time to put on the brakes.

      Things aren’t going as fast as planned. Maybe clinical trials are delayed. We scale back our efforts and help with cash planning. You don’t need to lay off staff.

    • • Time for your IPO.

      You hire a CFO and a controller. But you still need top talent to fill the gaps and handle critical projects. Engine Room functions as a fully immersed, up-to-speed extension of your internal team.
