We're building LiveFlow to help millions of people build better businesses by helping them manage their finances easily.

_ Every _ company has to manage its P&L and its cash, but too many companies drown because of manual financial work, no understanding of how their numbers work, and too many other day-to-day priorities.

We want to fix that.

We have raised $3.8m from top-tier investors like Y Combinator, Seedcamp, WndrCo, Moonfire, and Bradley Horowitz (VP Product, Google). We were also featured as the top product on Product Hunt.

Here's a bit of press from our Seed Round fundraise.

Why you should join LiveFlow

We're building LiveFlow to help companies manage their finances with confidence and ease.

Every company has to control its budget and its cash, but too many startups drown before they ever get to see regular and reliable numbers. The lucky ones invest a ton of time and tedious effort to pull their disparate data together every month. For most, the solution is a mix of fragile spreadsheets and flakey scripts. We want to fix that.

Don't get us wrong; spreadsheets are an amazing tool – and scripts can be pretty great too! Spreadsheets are so useful in fact that it's estimated that as many as one billion people use them every month¹. However... Their flexibility and versatility come at the expense of simplicity and maintainability.

We can do better by allowing businesses to easily integrate their own financial data sources. We can do better by automatically updating reports and dashboards, as soon as new data becomes available. We can do better by intelligently detecting errors, anomalies, and even opportunities.

We believe that we can do even better than that.
