Personal finance expert

With Pilot, you get an advisor who knows your business and growth stage. We’ll help set up your full finance stack for scale, including preferred cash–sweep accounts, payroll, and expense–management. We’re your partner.

Unmatched accuracy

Finally, modern bookkeeping powered by technology. We sync with your financial accounts like Quickbooks, Gusto, and Expensify and check our work twice. Our software auto–categorizes and identifies errors, and your personal finance expert reviews and tailors every set of books. The result? Monthly statements with unmatched accuracy–so you can get back to running your business.

Why founders love Pilot

Everyone we tried before Pilot did not know how to deal with early–stage startups. Pilot's deep expertise has been refreshing, and it's been smooth sailing ever since.

CEO, Lexigram

Pilot automatically connects to our financial accounts, sends us monthly reports, and syncs everything in Quickbooks. They helped us save by flagging double payments. We pretty much spend zero time on accounting and can focus on our product and company.

Render CEO
Anurag
Founder, Render

Pilot has been a fantastic partner, and I honestly don't think there are any comparable alternatives in the space. Their approach combines a human touch with the efficiency and reliability of an automated process.
