Why are we here?

So what are we doing here? Why have we founded Go Start It?

One simple reason, to let people like you start businesses like this. I've spent the last five years of my career training as an accountant and supporting some of the biggest businesses in the World with their finance issues. That might have been fraud, technology and compliance issues. Then I had a change of team and helped to set up Propel by Deloitte as their Delivery Lead.

Working in Propel we met a lot of entrepreneurs and a lot of startups who weren't quite ready for us yet. They had an idea, they wanted to raise money, but they couldn't afford to pay a full time accountant. They needed someone who could help them navigate the UK compliance landscape and help them with admin, but mostly provide some reassurance that they weren't missing anything.

That's why we're here. As they say:

You don't know what you don't know

So here we are, telling you what you need to do, and then helping you do it.
