About Focused Energy
Focused Energy is a full-service outsourced CFO, finance and accounting firm. We are headquartered in Denver, CO and also have an office in Boston, MA. We handle it all - from the mundane data entry to the complex financial models and business strategy. Our fractional CFO, finance and accounting services give businesses the resources that they need to grow successfully and attain their vision. We are a team passionate about helping business owners succeed, to know their business and understand their risks. Most importantly, we enable them to make their business decisions with confidence.
Focused Energy was founded in 2013 in Boulder, Colorado by Drew Lyon, a finance guy passionate about helping small businesses succeed in a tough world. A knowledge of finance combined with a respect for innovation led Drew to start a company dedicated to helping people with great ideas to create prosperous businesses. Because of his drive to help other entrepreneurs, Drew has always supported (both professionally and personally) local and small businesses as much as possible.
It is a running joke with his friends and colleagues that Drew is never able to simply check out and leave a local shop. Instead, in the same breath as greeting a shop owner, he's asking "How is business?" He knows that this open-ended question gives business owners the opportunity to talk about what has been working, but more importantly, their challenges. A routine trip to the local bakery for a croissant and coffee is merely a breakfast stop for some. For Drew, it's an opportunity to dive headlong into a series of business questions such as, "How many coffee shops are you selling pastries to?," "How many cakes are ordered each week?" and more. At any small business, as the line of customers behind him grows, Drew will always wish the owner good luck on his way out.
Today, the Focused Energy team and our client portfolio has grown since we first got our start, but we remain true to our roots. While the work with our current clients often times involves more complex business strategy and financial needs than the neighborhood bakery, the general business principles and our genuine interest in making an impact remains the same. Every member of our team holds these ideals and passion for helping any business that we come in contact with. On any given Saturday morning you can bet that you will find one of our team members at a local business in downtown Denver, CO or Boston, MA. Other nearby customers are bound to overhear them inquire, "So how's business going?"
