Three Butterflies is inspired by Lisa's grandmother who was a book keeper. As a young woman who grew up in London at the turn of the 20th Century, she didn't have opportunities to fully realize her career potential. Fast forward to the 3rd generation, we dedicate this company to her memory.
Lisa has been instrumental in not just managing our books, but also plotting our financial future and driving investor communication.
Most importantly, she took the time to understand our business and tailor her efforts to our stage, product, and situation. I would recommend her firm to any Silicon Valley start up looking to punch above its weight in fiscal mastery with minimal stress, high confidence - and fair pricing.
