Jim Hjerpe Kaskade
- President & CEO, Eyespot Corporation
The pace within high-technology companies is staggering, and
execution is the only thing that matters. Blackford Partners has
been an integral part of my executive management team, and as a
trusted advisor, we have worked closely together through complex
financing and operational issues. This partnership has translated
into real value, allowing me to focus on engaging customers, developing
the technology, and building out my team.
- CEO, PowerGenix Corporation
We worked with BlackFord Partners for almost three years before
bringing on a full time CFO. During this time we completed several
financings with top tier venture firms and our bank, advanced to
commercialization of our technology, and had numerous other situations
which benefited from having the knowledge and experience of an integrated
senior financial executive on the team to assist with both planning
and execution. BlackFord provided us with an affordable and impactful
means to engage this level of experience that we would not have
been able to afford or justify at our stage.
Fred Muto -
Partner, Cooley Godward Kronish, Partner in Charge
Over the years, we have worked with BlackFord in a number
of our clients, and on matters ranging from general business issues
to significant financing and M&A transactions. We have found
these experiences to be very positive and complimentary to our efforts,
as well as effective and valuable to our mutual clients.

"At some point, an early stage company should consider engaging
a part time CFO resource, to integrate with management and provide
among other things, experience to develop a credible and fundable
financial model, leadership and leverage with the financing process,
and operational accountability to the investment plan.
I have worked with Stan and Jeff on several deals, including my
own company Doctor Design, and can give them a very high recommendation."
