About the Speaker
Founder, Partner and Chief Executive Officer
David Ehrenberg founded Early Growth Financial Services (EGFS) in 2008 to address the lack of on-demand financial support available to startups. David’s passion for mentoring entrepreneurs, and helping early-stage startups to thrive, led him to create the integrated financial solution that EGFS provides, from day-to-day accounting to strategic finance, tax, and valuation support.
As CEO, David has overseen incredible growth at EGFS. His articles and insights are frequently posted in such prestigious publications as Forbes, Inc, VentureBeat, Huff Post Small Business, Yahoo! Small Business Advisor, Startup Nation, and more. He is an active speaker and event leader who presents regularly to founders and others within the startup ecosystem.
David has strategic and operational expertise in all areas of early-stage finance, including strategic planning, forecasting, venture funding, debt financing, and M&A. Prior to founding EGFS, David was the first CFO for Abound Logic, playing an integral role in building out the company’s finance and administrative infrastructure. Before that, David was a Controller for Microsoft, in a division that focused on creating new products and business solutions. Earlier in his career, David was a key member of the finance team at Extreme Networks and Voice Stream Wireless and VP of Finance for Radiant Research, where he was responsible for selling the company in two transactions and ensuring a successful exit for investors and management.
After graduating from Georgetown University with degrees in accounting and finance, David started his career on Wall Street doing mergers and acquisitions work for Deloitte & Touche. He went on to earn his MBA from the University of Washington.
While David’s focus these days is primarily on expanding EGFS’s service offerings, opening up new markets, and forging strategic relationships, he still relishes the time he gets to spend with enthusiastic founders, helping them to do what they do best.
