RoseRyan creates Kukuza Associates to focus on Cannabis market

Building off its wave of success in the cannabis industry, RoseRyan has launched a new company, Kukuza Associates LLC, that concentrates solely on the cannabis market. The new company is a finance and accounting consulting firm that closely mirrors its parent, RoseRyan, and packs the full strength, depth and capabilities of it.

Kukuza Associates works with startups and established companies in every segment of the cannabis market at every stage of the lifecycle. Its clients benefit from RoseRyan’s large team of finance experts as well as the firm’s best practices. Says Dave Roberson, CEO of Kukuza, “Kukuza’s finance and cannabis accounting solutions are vital for businesses that are growing, vertically integrating and eyeing deals. Our experienced team steps in, brings order to the chaos and navigates cannabis companies ahead by putting a solid finance foundation in place.” He notes that Kukuza’s cannabis solutions address strategic finance as well as day-to-day accounting, emphasizing that both are prerequisites for sustainable success.

Kukuza’s Cannabis Solutions: Based off of RoseRyan’s original offering for the cannabis industry, Kukuza sports a newly refined and expanded set of cannabis solutions. Kukuza flexibly delivers these six solutions:

Strategic Finance – Provides CFO and controller expertise to ready the company for investors, fundraise, plan and budget for intelligent growth. Forms the basis of the company’s strategic and operational plans and helps propel its value creation.

Outsourced Cannabis Accounting – Creates the overall framework for systems and processes for all of the company’s accounting and provides outsourced accounting professionals on an ongoing basis. Can also provide cost accounting, audit prep, and other resources and interim experts on a “plug and play” basis, to help the company manage its hypergrowth. Financial

Reporting and Analysis – Digs into the numbers to truly understand the business. Focuses on trends and insights within the business for informed decision-making and scenario planning based on various assumptions.
