Building our Entrepreneurial Ecosystem: Accountants, Bookkeepers, and Small Businesses

Two things that almost every small business owner needs to support their business are an accounting professional and a bookkeeper. We have identified a gap in the available resources to support our entrepreneurial ecosystem with a shortage of high-quality, affordable bookkeeping services for small and startup businesses. This also leads to an awesome opportunity for individuals looking to be self-employed or to have a flexible well-paid career path as a bookkeeping professional.

Hannah Grimes is excited to be hosting a solutions-focused forum to discuss the needs and ideas already being considered including:

  • creating a local bookkeepers network
  • training & mentoring programs for bookkeepers
  • a way to connect businesses with qualified bookkeepers
