Bookkeeping doesn’t have to be so painful

How to use Holvi, Small Business Tips | 25/07/15 14:30

We often hear from small business owners that their biggest frustration is that they are not in the business of business administration. The majority of them are not interested in doing bookkeeping, nor are they efficient at tracking their financials. On average, entrepreneurs spend 6.8 hours per week on performing their own financial management tasks, and the sad part is that the time spent on this tedious manual work does not really help move your business forward. However, it is extremely important for your business bottom line to be fully aware of your financial situation at all times.

Generation Y and Financial Transparency 2.0

How to use Holvi | 13/05/15 17:50

50% of Millennials want to start their own business, or have already done so, according to the book by Sarah Sladek. However, majority of them are not only driven by a desire to make profits, 61% of today’s Makers and Doers feel personally responsible to make a difference in the world. Each of them has their own way of making a difference: starting up a company that produces clothes made of recycled materials, or teaching yoga to help people live more mindful lives, or creating a non-profit to support social causes. What distinguishes Generation Y is that they are socially active citizens who are capable of self-organizing friends and communities for grassroots activism. Often such initiatives require financial transparency, which traditional financial institutions cannot provide. That’s why they choose to use Holvi to openly run the financial side of their campaigns and projects.
