While millions of small business owners and startup entrepreneurs are masters at creating great products and services, building awesome teams and getting investments; many of them lack the means or time, to manage their companies’ finances and paperwork.
Finanzeal was created with the purpose of assisting up-and-coming companies run their business more efficiently by removing the burden of maintaining an in-house accounting department.
Finanzeal is geared mainly towards small businesses and non-for-profit organizations that need bookkeeping, accounting and financial services.
Finanzeal is made up of a network of extremely knowledgeable and talented staff that has extensive experience with start-ups and non-for-profit accounting. Our team of professionals can be as involved as needed; ranging from setting up a customized accounting system, to tracking and supervising overall finances and regulatory compliance.
Before founding Finanzeal, Kathy worked for over five and a half years as Director of Finance and Operations for a well known non-profit organization. During her tenure as a Director of Finance and Operations, Kathy developed a passion for working with start-up companies which motivated her to create Finanzeal. “I love the scrappiness and the fast- paced environment under which start-up companies constantly operate”. Kathy has always loved finance and accounting. In her opinion, accounting is not about just “crunching the numbers” but also about helping companies achieve their goals.
As a small business owner herself, Kathy understands the struggles of running a successful business. In addition to embracing challenges Kathy has shown the ability to adapt to many environments, wear many hats and interact with a diverse group of individuals.
Kathy has over 12 years of experience working with a wide range of companies within both the private sector to include real estate management and construction companies, and the non-profit sector.
