"John Kokulis offered me a wealth of practical advice on obtaining funding for our company. In addition to his high level of expertise, John's warm manner and "people skills" only add to his credibility and trustworthiness. His input played a key role in the development of our business. I would recommend him to anyone."
"We just purchased a business and are in the process of putting together a business plan for the next three years. One of the most critical aspects we need to focus on is coming up with a staffing/manpower plan and a calculation on what our salary expense will be. Since we are spending most of our time on developing our products or working with customers, we do not have the time/money to purchase and learn a comprehensive business planning software nor do we have the time to create our own templates. We turned to Constantine Venture’s CFO Support Site and downloaded the MANPOWER & SALARY EXPENSE PLANNING spreadsheet. With its easy to use instructions and simple to understand templates, we were able to create our 3 year manpower plan with a matter of hours. The price was right as well!"

"This CFO Support Site provided invaluable tools and advice that far exceeded our expectations and surpassed any information we could have received elsewhere - all at a significant time and cost savings. John Kokulis and his team clearly have the knowledge, expertise, and insight that any company can use to raise capital, achieve growth, and maintain a competitive edge."
"Recently I was assigned the task of managing our corporate employee option program. Having had no prior experience, I found your spreadsheet program easy to use as well as extremely comprehensive. All I had to do was input the option information for each employee and board member and the software calculated 99% of what I needed to satisfy the FAS123 requirements. My anticipation of weeks and weeks of concentrated effort to set up a via management option tool, has been reduced to a single afternoon!"
