Emerging Growth Company practice

Your audit, your future

Emerging growth companies are powering innovation in the broader economy. We expect many of these companies to become dominant in their categories, or to create entirely new categories. Emerging growth companies place a premium on innovation in their own businesses, and they expect the same from the companies they work with, including their auditors.

Deloitte Audit & IPO readiness services: Committed to the future

From startup to IPO and beyond

How we can help

We understand that one size doesn’t fit all. Each emerging growth company has its unique needs and issues at different stages of growth. As your company grows, we make the necessary changes to grow with you. Quality is our top priority; our approach to client service focuses on the challenges of high-growth companies, the road to IPO, and a commitment to the venture community.

Our services include audit, tax compliance, indirect tax advice, international tax structuring, ERP implementations, and more. Whether you are just launching or contemplating an IPO, we can help.

We encourage you to leverage our network to strengthen yours. Our national proprietary workshop series is designed to equip CEOs, CFOs, and accounting and finance teams with valuable knowledge.
