Connect with Steve Carnevale

I will want to hire Steve as my CFO in every company I ever lead! I value his deep financial and business expertise which includes working with startups like ours. I leaned on him for his experience in complex funding and legal transactions. He was an integral part of our recent successful transaction with Truist. His focus on the details, process discipline and getting things done right were so needed in our company when we started.

These last 2.5 years have been a roller coaster of exciting highs and scary lows. Steve was always the voice of calm and reason. His team and his peers like and respect him. He guided us through those troubling times with an unwavering commitment and work ethic. We could not have done it without him!
