Product Hunt Daily Digest
April 17th, 2019

This tax advisor for startups raised $40M

Today’s Daily Digest was crafted by Product Hunt and sponsored by our friends at Pilot.


Phew, tax season is over.


Is it too early to get a jump on bookkeeping for next year's taxes? We're thinking it's not—especially if you run a startup.


That’s where Pilot comes in. Pilot is a bookkeeping company that focuses exclusively on startups. Their secret sauce? People doing what people do best, and software doing what software does best. As a user, you’re paired with a dedicated account manager who’s a full-time Pilot employee, and they do your bookkeeping in QuickBooks using software that Pilot has built. 💯


It’s basically a friendly cyborg army that does your bookkeeping. 💕


And Pilot has some news. Yesterday, Stripe and Index Ventures invested $40M in Pilot’s Series B, valuing the startup at $355M. 💰📈The company also unveiled Pilot Tax, a new corporate tax prep service.


Some thoughts from Pilot customers:


“Pilot integrates with all our systems and they went above and beyond to make sure we had the support we needed” - Josh Green, Karuna


"It’s so nice to have everything in one place. Before Pilot Tax it felt like I was managing a million different tools to get our books, tax filings, and 1099s all handled” - Steve Bartel, Gem


“Pilot took care of our 1099 filings, Delaware Franchise Tax filings, income tax filings, all of it. Everything was handled seamlessly by their team, which enabled us to spend our time running the business rather than stressing over tax preparation” - Grant Lee, ClearBrain
