How we got started

From Big 4 accounting firm management, to public company CFO, to high-growth startup founder and CEO to exit. All of our experience is at your disposal.

The story behind our success

We founded Innovate-Accounting to provide a level of back-office accounting and CFO advisory services that our Founders have personally widely searched for with continued frustration and failure.  

Many CPA firms and private companies purport to provide similar services, however most fail in some manner from competence, service-level, attention or cost.  

As INNOVATORS, we are addressing the need for a high-quality professional bookkeeping, accounting and CFO advisory practice at a reasonable cost.
