Fuze Chief Financial Officer Brian Day Selected to Speak at MIT Sloan CFO Summit
the leading cloud-based communications platform provider for the modern
global enterprise, today announced that Chief Financial Officer Brian
Day will be a featured speaker at the 2017
MIT Sloan CFO Summit, the nation's premier CFO event, on Thursday,
Nov. 16, 2017. Day, who will join the panel track, "Starting
Up" from 2:30-3:30 p.m., EST, will address challenges startups can
face when raising capital and how financial executives can position
their company for the right investment opportunities.
"It takes tremendous courage and grit to take an idea, create a business
strategy around it, and seek investors who will believe in your product
and commit to partnering with you on your vision," said Day. "Raising
capital is more of an art than a science, but it's only one piece of the
puzzle. Entrepreneurs face unique pressures from all sides, but
particularly when it comes to making financial decisions about their
startup. I look forward to sharing my experiences and advice with
current and future financial leaders at this year's Summit."
Mr. Day oversees financial strategy, planning, and operations for the
company. Since he joined in December 2016, Fuze has raised $134
million in capital, bringing the copany's total funding to $334
million. Earlier that year, Forbes named Fuze one of 2016's Next
Billion-Dollar Startups, a list of 25 companies that are
transforming their industries and showing tangible results. In continued
recognition of its leadership in the Unified Communications (News - Alert) as a Service
(UCaaS) market, Fuze has been named
to the Forbes Cloud 100 for the second
consecutive year in 2017.
"Today's CFO is required to juggle a variety of objectives effectively,
now more than ever before," said Jeremy Seidman, Co-Chair of the MIT (News - Alert)
Sloan CFO Summit. "From mastering strategic uses of technology to
identifying the drivers that affect critical operations decisions, this
premier Summit will empower attendees to understand and achieve the
right balance. We look forward to having Brian join our esteemed list of
speakers and presenters this year."
The 15th annual Summit brings together 500 of the nation's
top chief financial officers and senior financial executives to learn

Chaos," seeks to answer how today's CFOs can make financial decisions
