Technology

Hey tech companies!
We’re a huge fan of what you’re doing, and we’d love to help you.

We believe that every tech startup has a vision that they’re working towards. Whether it’s a pre-revenue venture that’s developing an MVP or a Series B with hockey stick growth, the mission is typically the same: to make the world a better place.

We’re an accountancy firm that you can rely on. One that understands the uniqueness of the sector. One that helps you grow rather than hold you back.

Early start ups

Founding a tech startup is hard. You’re trying to develop a product, run a business, raise money and please a lot of people. But it’s your resilience and determination that makes you a truly unique individual.

Successful founders have one thing in common: they know what they do well and know what they need help on, and this is where we come in. We’re not just here to help with the normal accounting side of things – we’re here to help you and your startup head in the right direction, so ask us questions, challenge us and don’t be afraid to ask for help.

Start-up CFO, FD or FC

As a Top 20 firm, we’re uniquely positioned to be able to be a helping hand to you as a CFO, FD or FC of a tech company. You’re often the only accounting person in the company which can make it tricky when you need second opinion or additional advice. We’ll act as your sounding board and help however we can.

Having worked with many companies on their exit plans – whether through an IPO or M&A activity, we’re well positioned to guide you towards that and help in any way that we can.
