Founders of startups need full financial support, since they are focused on growing their company and cannot manage all aspects of it simultaneously. Having well-controlled financial insight is essential for entrepreneurs, and we understand these challenges all too well. A quick decision-making capability based on accurate financial information is not just nice to have, it’s essential. We help UK startups, tech disruptors, fintech innovators and media agencies establish the foundations and processes they need to make the right decisions.

There are a number of shortcuts that a fast-moving startup can fall into, but our experience will help founders avoid the biggest pitfalls and keep their business on track – because a scalable business needs solid foundations for growth, structure, KPIs and financial planning.

We help business owners avoid the biggest pitfalls and keep their business on track by providing accurate information as quickly as possible. The simple cloud accountant or a traditional outsourced accountant would fall short of the expectations of ambitious founders. Neither would be aligned with your strategy, and neither would be as responsive and collaborative as an ambitious founder needs. High-growth startups need quick reporting and accurate insight in real-time.

Challenges are everywhere, and businesses, especially busy founders, are no exception to the myriad challenges. While there are new beginnings, there are also exits, thousands of startups exit each year due to the pain points they are challenged with. Endless market research, late nights, more than one launch, bottomless coffee pots, and a grueling seed round have led to this. In their startup journey, many founders realise the learning process is continually changing as it reaches new stages.
