Create opportunities with CLA
When you’re racing to get an idea to market or managing break-neck company growth, every business move is critical — but too often a distraction from the innovations you’re developing, introducing, or commoditizing. You can count on CLA’s technology industry CPAs, consultants, and advisors to offer sound advice every step of the way, all while shouldering the burdens of back-office functions and regulatory compliance.
Our professionals understand entrepreneurs like you because we are entrepreneurs like you. Many of our people have built, operated, and sold technology companies and come from a variety of technical backgrounds in the industry. And we work with hundreds of fast-growth and mature technology companies in all sectors, including software and applications, SaaS (software as a service), clean technology, and renewable energy. We strive to know you, your business, and your dreams —from the very beginning all the way to the ultimate end.
