We’re seeking Contract CFOs, Controllers and Bookkeepers with an entrepreneurial mindset to join the Tandem Network

Tandem Innovation Group is an ecosystem for entrepreneurial independent consultants and professional advisors who collaborate with visionary entrepreneurs to innovate and grow businesses from startup to exit. 


The Tandem Network comprises mostly professional accounting consultants, including Contract CFOs, Growth Advisors, Accounting and Bookkeeping Professionals, as well as a growing list of consultants across disciplines.


We share resources and a breadth of overhead costs. We mentor and support each other to problem solve. And we access Tandem’s back-office support team to grow our capacity as we each grow our book of business. 


Most of us started our consulting journey on our own and will never go back, having now experienced the power of the Tandem Network.

Why join the Tandem Network?

Tandem is known for our network. The ecosystem we’ve fostered is a melting pot of startups, business professionals, investors, incubators, and venture funds. 


When you join the Tandem Network, you gain access to exciting client opportunities that just wouldn’t be possible working on your own. 


You also become a member of a community that is committed to elevating our potential –  through continual training and professional development, knowledge exchange and referrals.


Each of our members is trained in the Tandem Way, a proprietary approach to service delivery that is strategic yet mindful of the details, relational and designed for scale – enabling each Network Member to provide huge value for their growing roster of clients. 


If you qualify to join the network, you’ll learn the latest advances in cloud-based accounting systems, as well as our sales method. And you’ll learn how to apply your natural instincts toward venture building, gleaning the tricks of the trade from veterans and peers alike. 

Tandem Network Members are collaborative, curious venture builders

We place a high value on diversity, and yet there are some common traits that define all the members of our community:

We want to hear from you if you fall into one or more of these categories:


  • You hold one or more accredited certificates in a professional field (e.g. CPA, CA, MBA, CPHR or PMP);
  • You have held a full-time senior role;
  • You’re looking to grow your capacity to do more consulting or freelance work;
  • You’re looking for support, mentorship and training to become a great contract professional;
  • You’re already an experienced expert and are looking to pick up additional work, share best practices, or mentor and support future great professionals.

How to join the Tandem Network and what to expect


Fill out the Network Member Application Form.
Applications open 3 times per year and stay open typically for 3 weeks.


If we both feel it’s a good fit, you’ll be invited to attend our next “Welcome To Venture Building” interactive online info session on May 5 and May 7, 2022, to learn more about the Tandem Way and for us to get to know you better.


You will also be enrolling in Tandem Academy, a 6-week training program (via Zoom) to learn the skills and best practices for winning clients, growing your book of business and scaling your work. You’ll learn from industry veterans and each other as you move through our program, with support at every step from our Network Success team.


We review applications and book one-on-one calls with qualified candidates on a rolling basis.


Next, you’ll receive instructions for starting your onboarding process, accessing the Tandem Network (via Slack)


Once in the network, you’ll be invited to join weekly check-ins to get to know other members and learn about new client opportunities, weekly QC Labs, Power Hour lunch-n-learns with relevant experts, and a variety of other events, workshops and community meetups designed to support you on your journey to becoming a great Contract CFO, Controller or Bookkeeper.
