What's your business, and who are your customers?

Mighty Startup is a management consulting firm that provides financial guidance, strategic planning, and tactical support to early-stage startups.

Tell us about yourself.

Before Mighty, I co-founded Botkeeper in 2015 to develop and deliver automated bookkeeping and accounting services to small businesses. As the leader of finance and operations, I grew the company to support hundreds of customers and reach substantial ARR milestones before saying goodbye at the time of Series B funding to pursue my passion - helping startup founders and small business owners with a growth mindset.

What's your biggest accomplishment as a business owner?

Building a business that employs hundreds of people gives them a better quality of life.

What's one of the hardest things that come with being a business owner?

Pressure from stakeholders, both internal and external.

What are the top tips you'd give to anyone looking to start, run and grow a business today?

  1. Build solid relationships and treat people fairly.
  2. Invest time and energy in finding product-market fit.
  3. Continuously invest in developing and improving your process and systems to enable efficient growth.

Where can people find you and your business?
