As founders, we’ve first-hand experience of what it’s like to grow a business and keep the plates spinning. But nobody has a better vision of what you want to achieve than you. It’s your passion and perseverance that really count.

Underpinning the development of your product or service, raising investment and winning new business is the management of cash-flow and core accounting best practice.

Since 2016…we’ve helped over 200 scale-ups.

Companies like Immersive Labs, who raised a $40m Series B led by Goldman Sachs, E3D and who made the Times’ Tech Track 100 list for two years running. Or, Yoto who won awards for their ingenious Product Design. Ambitious companies who are looking to grow rapidly and move from Pre-Seed to Seed to Scale-Up and then Exit.

As a Tech Start-up we have services to support you:

  • Core Accounting for a monthly fixed fee
  • R&D Tax Credits to boost cash-flow
  • Advice on EMI Share Options to incentivise employees.
