We can't wait to meet you...
Ju-Vern gets this excited every time she automates a process
Dan thinking of ideas for his next vlog
Dan and Ju-Vern cut their teeth working in the startup teams for PwC and KPMG respectively, before working in finance roles across a number of London startups.
Separately, they both became increasingly frustrated with the same problem. When you're working in a small company it simply isn't practical to hire a full finance team with a mix of skill-sets...
...But it isn't really possible to outsource either. External accountants are great at filing statutory accounts and VAT returns but they just aren't set up to get under the skin of the business.
Worse, their fixed fee model means that they are incentivised to spend as little time as they possibly can working with their clients, which just doesn't sit right.
When their paths crossed Dan and Ju-Vern set out on a mission to change the way that finance is delivered to rapidly growing businesses.
