What is huumans?

When we started working on huumans, we wanted to create a solution that supported not only small businesses, but their founders too - huumans helping humans.

Founding a small business is hard. Running a small business is harder still and achieving success, well - it's not easy. Every single small business founder is at one point pushed to their absolute limit to keep their business alive. They have to become instant experts in finance, customer service, hiring and strategy - as well as the 'thing' their business is known for. It's a rare person who has the courage to take it all on, risk everything and create something original and successful. Founders should be celebrated for choosing the path less chosen, the small business path, and we should also do everything we can to help them succeed.

This is where huumans is born from. We want to give small businesses the best chance to become successful, cheaper to operate and easier to organize. We want to reduce the learning curve a founder needs to navigate - just to keep things going day-to-day. While we can't solve for everything, huumans can help with responsive accountancy and bookkeeping support designed by and for entrepreneurs, a growing archive of smart, personalized resources crafted to decode the business world, and a range of simple plans that can fit any business - no matter the complexity or situation.

If you're a founder, let me tell you this - you're doing a job no-one else could do. You're unique. And if you ever feel overwhelmed or confused - you're not alone, and help is just an email away.

In the end it's about huumans helping humans.
