We love Startups. In fact, Marpé was founded to meet a specific unmet need in the market – to serve startups through the entire early growth phase, from seed to IPO.

At Marpé, we provide 409A valuations quickly and painlessly. We are very diligent and careful in our work, and we will stand behind our valuations in the case of an audit.

A first-time audit can be a painful experience for a privately held company. We know what auditors are looking for. We know how to put the right information in the right package, with a bow on it.


M&A transactions involve high stakes and often are highly pressured and fast paced. We provide support services for M&A transactions in several ways.


A bad audit can seriously jeopardize your ability to price and sell your IPO shares in a favorable market window. The entire IPO process can be derailed. We can help.


Startups, as well as later stage companies going through an IPO, all have at least one thing in common – they need help with taxes. We’re there for you.

Our Philosophy

We understand you want a business partner, not just an accountant.

Competence – We are experienced experts in the fields of corporate accounting and finance, and we provide best-in-class service.

Exceptional Value – Our quality of service, combined with our flexible pricing structure, is designed to provide exceptional value to our clients. In our market segments, we believe can provide better value than any of our competitors. And we really mean that. We're confident you'll agree.

Integrity – Integrity is not optional for us. Integrity is more important to us than profits. Seriously.

Our Practice

Relieving you of headaches is our desire. Let us take care of your finance & accounting headaches, so you can focus on something more important – your business.

Outsourced accounting and finance support for start up & early stage companies – We provide part-time, outsourced finance and accounting solutions at every level from CFO to payroll processing. We offer complete finance and accounting support for all facets of business growth, including bookkeeping, accounting, tax, financial reporting, financial analysis, financial modeling, budgeting & forecasting, and customized reporting for management, investors and Boards of Directors.

Audit support, IPO readiness & merger support – A first-time audit can be painful. As former auditors, we know how to remove the pain. And we have the requisite expertise and experience to support you as you grow. We provide technical accounting consulting to support you through the IPO process, including the audit and SEC review. If your exit strategy involves a merger, we bring our M&A experience to bear to assit you through the negotiations, due diligence and closing.

409A valuation – The U.S. Tax Code requires a professional valuation of private company stock and stock options in connection with grants of stock-based awards. We have business valuation expertise and experience with many private company valuations.
