The Nomad Way Our Culture Code
70% of startups prematurely scale. 93% of those never reach $100k in monthly revenue. 100% never reach 100k users.
...but it’s important that they focus their time and energy on growing their business. Entrepreneurs have a lot going on and we believe they can do it all…
That’s why we created Nomad.
Entrepreneurs focus on their business. We focus on their math.
Helping entrepreneurs succeed by removing the financial friction of starting and running a company.
Our team is made up of people with startups in their DNA… …And we understand first-hand the struggles faced by entrepreneurs in growing their business.
By providing bookkeeping and CFO services, we’re able to remove pain points, reduce risk and create opportunities for entrepreneurs.
Entrepreneurs reflexively turn to us for assistance.
For how we do it, and why we love it. Nomad Philosophies
