Bench Accounting, a Vancouver, Canada- and New York City-based provider of virtual bookkeeping services, closed $1m in funding.
Backers included Contour Ventures, Alpine Meridian, Lerer Ventures, Quotidian Ventures and unnamed angels.
The company intends to use the funds, which are in addition to a $2.1m in seed funding raised last summer, for continued growth among small businesses.
Founded by Ian Crosby and Jordan Menashy and launched out of TechStars New York in 2012, Bench Accounting provides a virtual bookkeeping service that combines personal (human) bookkeepers with a web-based app to allow small business owners to collaborate with their bookkeepers, to streamline tasks like sending documents and viewing reports.
The company’s bookkeepers are professionals recruited across North America. They are available to Bench clients via phone, email or through its web app.
Bench is hiring.
