Overview

Silverfin has reinvented the way accountants work. Our technology allows accountancy firms (Big-4 and mid-sized firms) to automate significant parts of their workload and spend more time on value adding activities. The Silverfin SaaS platform consolidates fragmented software tools and creates a real-time view into financial data of business clients. Higher levels of automation lead to increased efficiency and fewer errors.

Founded in 2013, Silverfin has grown over 300% YoY and recently completed a $4.5 million series-A funding round led by Index Ventures. The funds are used to scale the business internationally. Besides our home market Belgium, we have successfully launched the London operations earlier this year and are about to enter additional markets across Europe.
