More Than Just Consultants
Unlike other consulting services that try to sell the same methods to every client, Startupcannon was created to deliver individualized, bespoke solutions. We bend over backwards to deliver solutions that exactly match your set of circumstances. And unlike some services that keep their methods a secret, we guide you and your team to success by being an open book and sharing knowledge because we understand that you don’t just want consulting services, you want your company to actually be successful.
We have experience growing companies and know what it’s like to wake up in the middle of the night and debate whether to get more sleep or to get up and start working. Like you, we understand that running and growing a company is hard work. We get it, and we’re here to help you through.
In order to keep quality standards high, we only serve a limited number of companies at a time. Please contact us for a free consultation.
Why Choose Us?
Companies that want to operate strategically while managing cash flow find it advantageous to hire Startupcannon as their contract CFO instead of hiring a full time CFO. By ramping up the services of Startupcannon as a company grows, companies are able to intelligently deploy more capital to non-financial parts of the organization without neglecting the financial, accounting or operational areas of their business.
We can perform both long-term engagements as well as short-term project-based engagements, depending on the needs of your company.

Startupcannon was founded by Anthony Cammarata.
Anthony began his career with a large, prominent New York based public accounting firm, where he got his first taste working with and for entrepreneurs. His work bridged the audit and tax sides of the organization and allowed him to develop and execute strategies for clients to maximize the flow of money from a client’s customers to their stakeholders and investors.
Anthony next joined a Maryland based real estate development firm where he successfully led all accounting and financial reporting for the development of a $200 million real estate joint-venture project between his firm and the one of the world’s largest private equity firms. Anthony also served as a liaison between all parties involved in the venture.
After the completion of the joint-venture, Anthony joined one of most successful Washington, DC based technology companies where he helped raise $120 million over three funding rounds and helped grow the company from a 10 person startup to a mid-sized 250 person organization. During this tenure he helped refine a transactional recording system so that it could accurately scale transactional volume by 15,000%. He also built the organization’s accounting department and re-built its financial reporting and payroll functions from scratch.
Education & Certification: University of Maryland, MBA, concentrations in Finance & Entrepreneurship; Certified Public Accountant, New York State.
