As a startup founder, there are so many things you need to take into consideration, and many that you may have never even thought of. 

When starting your own businesses it can be tricky financially, keeping track of how much you’re making, what outgoings you’re having, and oftentimes people can’t afford to do all of these little jobs themselves.

The platform allows you to track your business’s money, what’s coming in, and most importantly what’s going out. This platform allows you to stay on top of your business finances smoothly and stress-free. You are able to connect the bank accounts you use for your business, and you will be able to log in anytime to view your dashboard - absolutely free of charge, to see how you are doing.

You will then be able to share these insights with mentors and colleagues using the share my dashboard function - keeping those who need to be, in the loop.
