The Journey

During my previous founder journey, I came close to shutting down. At one point, I was asked by our board member to put together a "shut down analysis" - Something I had no idea what it meant at the time but as an entrepreneur I knew I would just figure it out.

Long story short, I got sent from lawyer to lawyer and accountant to accountant, searched the internet and found it almost impossible to get any reliable information on the process of properly shutting down a company. It's as if it's taboo!

This seemed crazy to me. Nine out of ten startups that raise will shut down, but no one wants to deal with the process. Information and simplicity is even more critical at a time where as a founder, you are in a very difficult situation and need as much help and support as possible.

Therefore, we decided to build a company that helps companies shut down - A TurboTax for shutting down. Software that automates the process, saving hundreds of hours of work and tens of thousands of dollars!
