January 25  

Medical Alley, MN – CLA (CliftonLarsonAllen LLP), a Minneapolis-based professional services company, pledges support for Medical Alley entrepreneurs through a sponsorship of Medical Alley Starts.  

CLA is teaming up with the Medical Alley Association to provide financial services to startup companies, clearing barriers for them to grow. The firm is offering a 25% discount on professional services in the first year of a working relationship with each eligible startup.  

Their team has experience in health care and life sciences, serving clients across the entire continuum of care in areas such as audit and tax services, financial analysis and reporting, consulting and outsourcing, and wealth advisory. CLA’s outsourcing services allow entrepreneurs to focus on adding value to their organization by providing scalable strategies for finance, accounting, and human resources ranging from bookkeeping to executive positions. These services allow early-stage companies access to experienced financial resources at a fraction of the cost of full-time employees.   

“We are excited to join forces with Medical Alley to help start-up organizations be successful,” said Paul Carlson, Manager, CLA Minneapolis. “We pride ourselves in working closely with entrepreneurs and business owners to help preserve capital, manage and mitigate financial risk, and define, articulate, and achieve the future they envision.” 

“Medical Alley Starts and the startups that use it will benefit immensely from this partnership,” said Frank Jaskulke, who functions as the Vice President of Intelligence at the Medical Alley Association and leads Medical Alley Starts. “Financial planning and analysis are critical areas for startups as they grow, and CLA will be an invaluable resource for the region’s entrepreneurs.”
