  • One of the most common problems we see from startup founders that are first moving off from DIY accounting is a wide range of “personal transactions” being made with the business accounts.

  • The startup model has its flaws—instability, naiveté, long hours—making startups one of the last places one would think to look for an example of high-functioning business operations.
