Focused
Impact

We aim to enable and transform the growth of your business. We see too often great ideas fail due to the inability to execute and find the right team to help bring these ideas to life. It's our mission to make that change.

We see our success as a direct function of your success.  We strive to grow mindfully and quickly, aligning our incentives to succeed with yours. 

We value grit, determination, and the responsibility to ourselves and our clients to deliver transparent, candid results. 

Also, if you've come this far, know that we value and appreciate you. 

What's our story

History

SpurBridge is the recent formation from two established organizations: StartUpFinancial, LLC and Enodare Consulting, Inc. StartUpFinancial had targeted early-stage organizations to assist with financial guidance, operations, and fundraising efforts leading founders through often unfamiliar territory.  Enodare was a boutique management consulting and delivery organization serving Software- and Platform-as-a-Service (SaaS/PaaS) organizations in the business-to-business (B2B) space.  

The pair found frequent synergies with their clients and recognized the increasing need for strong, strategic guidance coupled with the ability to provide resources and execution as well. SpurBridge combines the strengths of these organizations to offer a richer experience and more complete outcome for the customers we serve.  Today, SpurBridge continues to expand its team of professionals, incorporating full support across the organization.
