Why are We the Best Gusto Accountant for Venture Backed Startups?

We think that we are the best accountant to work with if you are a venture or seed funded company using Gusto because our clients have raised over $10 billion dollars in seed and venture financing in the past twelve months, we are a Gusto Gold Partner, we use industry standard software like Quickbooks (good luck getting acquired by a public company if you are using some oddball startup accounting software!), and we provide the full suite of accounting services venture backed companies need – including tax.
