You’re in good hands. We’re not trying to sell you on our services. Instead, here are some great people that will do the hard work for us.
"I'm very grateful for all the work that KBC did here at Webflow early on and beyond as the Company grew. As a first in-house CPA, I couldn't be happier with the state of the accounting I inherited and for all the help, knowledge and history about our financials during the time KBC and Webflow worked together. KBC team was also incredibly helpful while we transitioned accounting in-house - and that makes my job so much easier. I'd recommend KBC to anyone."
“Stan’s deep knowledge and experience working with marketplace businesses was invaluable for Lyft when we were in the process of building the foundation for our financial accounting systems. He jumped in and quickly helped hire a great team and put best practices in place.”
“KBC helped us to build out the finance function and scale during 18 months of rapid growth. They operated as extended members of our team and were actively involved in the recruitment and transition to an in-house finance team. I was impressed by their technology start-up expertise, best practice sharing, and customer service orientation. I would welcome the opportunity to work with Carolyn and her team again.”
"KBC provided a high touch service and we genuinely felt like they were part of our company, not just outsourced consultants. They were an integral part of building our accounting processes and supported the company through rapid growth. I would recommend them to anyone looking for a partner to bring structure to their accounting function."
"Spencer and the rest of the team at KBC are reliable and efficient. They fit seamlessly into our organization and managed almost all of our accounting work. They stayed on top of our external partners to make sure we got paid on time and in full. During our acquisition they worked nights and weekends to help us close the deal. I’m happy to recommend them."
"We have been very impressed with KBC—their professionalism, timeliness and extensive knowledge are unmatched. Carolyn and her team are always listening and always ready to make a solid recommendation. As we continue to grow, they have been an invaluable resource. We have referred KBC to several friends over the years and will definitely continue to do so in the future!"
"KBC was a critical and accountable team to run our accounting and financial reporting functions. They were able to quickly get up and running from our previous in-house controller, create great systems to optimize our processes, and standardize our reporting. During a pivotal time, KBC provided strategic advice around runway management through building and maintaining a short term cash flow forecast. Even through our acquisition process they stepped up to the challenge, and helped transition us into the new company. I happily recommend Bryan and his team to any company KBC works with!"
"Since inception, KBC has felt like an extension of our own team. From building and maintaining a robust financial forecast, establishing a consistent month end close process, and assisting with inventory management, KBC has been with us step-by-step. As we've continued to grow, KBC has even helped us recruit our first internal finance hire to ensure a smooth transition in-house. Phil's finance function would not be where it is today without KBC's insight and leadership. "
“Our partnership with KBC was instrumental as we grew from a company with one full-time employee in 2015, to nearly 150 employees and three international subsidiaries when we brought our accounting and finance functions in-house 6 years later. In addition to helping us grow and expand internationally, KBC also assisted with multiple financing rounds, carried us through an initial audit, assisted with an ERP transition, and worked with us through the ups and downs that inevitably arise for a rapidly growing and constantly evolving business like ours. Beyond their technical and strategic aptitude, I especially appreciated their emphasis on client service, responsiveness and communication. It always felt as if they were a part of our team. I'd highly recommend KBC. "
"I absolutely love working with KBC and have sung their praises to any startup that will listen over the past 30 months. Carolyn and the team understand client service like no other and their model allows them to deliver outstanding quality at a fraction of the cost of an in-house accounting function."
"KBC was our full service finance partner from day one through almost five years of growth. Their team provided excellent coverage of all accounting and compliance, including significant tax refunds via R&D credits. When it came time to pull their services in-house, they provided an absolutely seamless handoff. We are grateful for their service to Rhumbix!"
The KBC team was instrumental to helping us build out our financial reporting and accounting functions. They became an integral part of our business and helped prepare us for monthly financial reviews with the Board and ongoing fundraising efforts. They have a great network and recommended our tax agents, benefits broker, and even a legal team to create our employee equity plan. We would highly recommend the KBC team to any start-up who needs financial, accounting and operational assistance.
“The KBC team was awesome to work with. They did a great job of providing structure and implementing necessary processes and procedures for a more complete back office function. They went above and beyond to assist with various tasks and projects that were unique to our company and were always willing to take on more in the name of servicing our needs. I would highly recommend KBC, and more specifically the team that we worked with, to anyone in the market for an outsourced accounting function.”
“The KBC team was critical to the success of the accounting and administrative functions at Earnin during a period of high-growth and transition. I relied heavily on their experience and team to improve our monthly close, to implement and administer new payroll and expense systems, and to prepare for our annual audit. It was clear that Carolyn and the day-to-day team cared deeply about the quality of their work and that they were meeting our needs as a client. I would welcome the opportunity to work with KBC again in the future.”
“KBC has been an invaluable business partner as well as trusted advisor. Carolyn and Stan have both “been there and done that” working with high growth and scaling tech companies, bringing to the table deep expertise and experience across multiple areas ranging from Saas accounting, to accounting systems and gearing up for international expansion. The team delivers high qualify work, and are extremely resourceful, flexible and responsive. I would highly recommend them to any company looking for accounting and finance help.”
“KBC team was particularly beneficial to us, as we needed a more senior consultant who could ramp up quickly and bring accounting expertise to the table, but who was also willing to roll up his/her sleeves and do the smaller tasks of a start up environment as well. We could not have transitioned CFOs in such a high growth period of our company without their support. Our consultant ramped up quickly, took over some key functions and helped to recruit our current controller and implement some key systems to enable us to scale.”
“Stan was willing to jump in on some issues we were facing with less than 48 hours notice and get an on-sight team completely spun up from scratch, and I will always appreciate that level of responsiveness. Since Stan and his team are startup people at their core, they understand that our world frequently changes on a dime, and then changes again. It’s rare to find someone of Stan’s stature who is not only willing, but is happy, to roll with that uncertainty.”
“If you find yourself in that situation where your company is growing, but you might not need a full-time hire dedicated to the Finance function, I’d highly recommend working with KBC. They provided a service level that perfectly fit our Finance needs as we grew.”
“Great experience with KBC – they worked hard to get our accounting systems set up and served as a dedicated, high-touch, focused partner. Stan was a fantastic resource – I would absolutely recommend them to anyone.”
“I hired KBC to help fulfill several critical needs. I feel KBC really differentiated themselves with high quality, high touch service and talent that is excellent. I highly recommend KBC to anyone looking for a quality firm to provide accounting/finance consultation and resources. We were very impressed.”
“I inherited KBC when I joined Tapingo and could not be happier. Our KBC team is highly-qualified, responsive, efficient and a pleasure to work with. They have provided us with critical accounting structure and guidance during our start-up and growth phases. And Carolyn has even made the transition to an in-house team easy by being flexible and accommodating with our timeline and needs. I highly recommend KBC to any start-up or small company looking for top-notch interim accounting and finance help.”
“KBC was a valued partner from our first year in business through our acquisition by a multinational software company. KBC helped us to build the foundation and scale our finance function as the company grew. Carolyn and her team’s experience, guidance and on-demand-at-all-hours support during the transaction were critical to its overall success. I would happily recommend Carolyn and KBC to any growing company.”
"In our early days, we started to feel a bit of accounting pain – and I'm so glad we found KBC! They got everything in order, and have kept it that way for years. In addition to accounting, KBC did a great job of keeping us aware of upcoming deadlines and other accounting best practices. As our company and needs grew, so did they – when we raised money, any numbers we needed were an email away! I highly recommend KBC, no matter what stage you're at."
"We worked closely with KBC to establish our accounting practices early on in our company's lifecycle. This was critical for us as we had to manage our cashflow very carefully given the early stage of our company. KBC was there for us and put us towards a path of success."
"I've had the pleasure of working with Spencer and the KBC team on multiple startup journeys now, from company formation to company acquisition. They were hard working, highly experienced, and great thought partners every step of the way. It's no surprise that one of the first calls I made when I decided to start my next company was to Spencer. It's a call I recommend all entrepreneurs make!"
“I have been thrilled with KBC. In their support of operations, M&A, and BOD reporting, they have continually exceeded my expectations in terms of their responsiveness, quality of work, and both breadth and depth of experience. They provide extremely high value at a very reasonable cost compared to doing this work in-house.”
“KBC has been an instrumental partner in building out our accounting and financial operations. They go beyond simple accounting to even helping to find and furnish our first office! They continue to be extremely responsive in helping us successfully navigate many of the challenges that come with a growing business. I love working with Carolyn and her team and would highly recommend them!”
"I'd highly recommend KBC as a finance partner for any early stage company. The team at KBC was responsive, reliable and knowledgeable. I was able to focus on strategic aspects of the business, knowing that KBC was providing the finance/accounting support so competently and cost effectively."
"We hired KBC during a period of very rapid growth in our business. They were able to step in and very quickly understand our marketplace business, identify gaps in our accounting systems, and spin up a team to take ownership. Their team is knowledgeable, experienced, and customer focused. They are not only professional and experienced, but also a joy to work with. I recommend them highly."
“KBC has been an invaluable partner to our finance organization. As we have grown in both size and complexity, KBC has consistently met the needs of our business and delivered impressive results. I would recommend KBC to anyone looking to bring increased sophistication and greater insight to their business.”
"KBC has been a trusted partner that has helped support us through periods of rapid growth. Their team is experienced and dedicated, and they were instrumental in building our accounting and FP&A functions, as well as, navigating us through financial audits. I'd recommend KBC for entrepreneurs and leaders looking for a strong accounting and finance partner."
"I've worked with KBC for several years and engaged them early on at Clearbit. KBC has been a fantastic partner and has helped in so many ways beyond core accounting. I highly recommend them to anyone looking for a great finance/accounting partner"
"We worked with KBC during a critical 18-month period where our company was growing fast, and we needed quality monthly financial closings while we built up in-house finance capabilities. The service from KBC was amazing from the start. The partner Stan was readily available to discuss upcoming needs, add KBC staff when needed for projects, and he was a great partner to discuss/plan transition back in-house when we were at scale. One thing that was especially welcome was the quality of the accountants and analysts working on our account and especially the Account Leads. We placed high reliance on the KBC team to deliver quality and timely work and the external audit was seamless. I would recommend the KBC team to any fast growing start up.”

"KBC was critical to supporting us from when we first got our funding through our various stages of growth and our eventual acquisition. The team was proactive in ensuring we were properly set up for success. Additionally, they were very responsive to any urgent questions and topics when we needed their support. As a cofounder, time is your most critical asset, and KBC was able to help us build the foundations of our finance and accounting function."
