"While there is merit in bootstrapping, spending on marketing and building your brand is always worth it."
How does Soldo solve for this?

Growing businesses become departmental rather than individual in the way that they spend.

With Soldo, cards can be assigned to departments rather than just individuals so that the budget allocations can be created with a team in mind. This means that when account reconciliations take place, there is a more robust picture of how the business has spent based on the organisational structure.

Businesses can start to think beyond product to the other aspects that grow the business and allocate budget accordingly.

Interview with Chris Edson & Pippa Murray

Pippa Murray of Pip&Nut and Chris Edson of Second Nature give us the episode where we finally tackle the dreaded “B” word – Brexit and its impact on start-ups and scale ups. 

Pippa breaks down the ways that political climate has impacted the business’s ability to forecast for spend against Chris’ experience of having seen no impact at all. This is the perfect episode to learn about the rollercoaster ride that comes with being a founder. 

Chris & Pippa's advice
  1. Money is not the only measure for employee happiness, autonomy and transparency go a long way for retention.
  2. While there is merit in bootstrapping, spending on marketing and building your brand is always worth it.
  3. When budgeting be realistic that way, you are more likely to exceed expectations rather than fall short.
  4. Unless you are a founder who wants to be the company’s CFO, bring in a Financial Director to stay on top of the finances.
