We All Have a Story to Share

Have you ever had one of those head‑slapping, ‘a‑ha!’ moments?


That’s what happened when our co-founder and CEO, Oreabetse Matlhare, realised the professional service industry has traditionally been dominated by a few key players. who through their breadth and scale, usually manage to serve mostly large organisations. This model makes it impossible SMEs and micro-businesses to even dream of affording these services. Oreabetse along with her partners, Linda Luu and Fadi Halwani, have made it their mission to change this.  

Founded in 2016, The Scalable CFO is the first member only network of Finance experts for startups and SMEs in the UAE connected by their passion and their commitment to quality work and transparency.
