David Ehrenberg founded Early Growth Financial Services (EGFS) in 2008 to address the lack of on-demand financial support available to startups. David’s passion for mentoring entrepreneurs, and helping early-stage startups to thrive, led him to create the integrated financial solution that EGFS provides, from day-to-day accounting to strategic finance, tax, and valuation support.

Prior to founding EGFS, David was the first CFO for Abound Logic, playing an integral role in building out the company’s finance and administrative infrastructure. Before that, David was a Controller for Microsoft, in a division that focused on creating new products and business solutions. Earlier in his career, David was a key member of the finance team at Extreme Networks and Voice Stream Wireless and VP of Finance for Radiant Research, where he was responsible for selling the company in two transactions and ensuring a successful exit for investors and management.

After graduating from Georgetown University with degrees in accounting and finance, David started his career on Wall Street doing mergers and acquisitions work for Deloitte & Touche. He went on to earn his MBA from the University of Washington.
