Startup Founders Love Zeni

Clarity on business finances

With Zeni's virtual CFO service, you're able to tell the difference of where your company is spending money and how it compares to the previous month, and having an outlook to how it will do in the coming year. These are things I never expected to get. Before using Zeni I wondered how we were spending most of our money, or whether or not we had enough income to sustain the company. Now I no longer have these questions. I would recommend Zeni for business finance management.

10/10 NPS

Zeni gives me peace of mind that our accounts, books, finances are managed well. The team's responsiveness feels as if they were working just for us. Questions are addressed via emails and the finance team have good context of our account, so we are not reexplaining ourselves every time we have a question or request. I'd give Zeni a NPS of 10.

Seamless finance management

When starting Veue Live, I knew that I wanted to start off on a good foot with our bookkeeping and financial management. After looking at several companies, Zeni was a clear winner. And I couldn't be happier with the service! I can prepare reports for my board in just a few clicks and keep an eye on our runway and other important metrics- and it takes so little of my time, it's amazing! I highly recommend Zeni to anyone and would happily serve as a reference customer anytime.
