My name is Benjamin Wann, CMA, CSCA, MBA, PMP, & CPA

At my core, I am a Small Business & Manufacturing Product Cost Expert. Today, I am the proud owner of Asheville, NC accounting/consulting firm CFO Consultants, LLC, with a team of 11; serving 450 customers!

Originally from the Philadelphia region and coming from a 10-year career providing insights to executives of mid-sized manufacturing firms, I transitioned to entrepreneurship full-time in November 2022. 

My thesis is that the small business community values the same expertise, technology and know-how that large organizations have to help accelerate their own businesses.

Typically, I’ve found, CPA or bookkeeping firms provide too little, too late, to help business owners make smart decisions. 

I am passionate about supporting the small business community with specialized services to help business owners understand their financials and feel like they have the expertise they need to thrive.

However, they introduce new considerations, like valuation caps and discount rates. Although SAFE Notes simplify investor-startup interactions and optimize the funding process, they can significantly affect startups’ future valuation and control, necessitating careful planning and legal advice.
