    Greeting All

    I am a new member to this website. I am a chartered accountant by training (although not working as one) and have been working in financial services industry the last 15 years.

    I am researching the pain points for small and micro businesses especially in the areas of financial and business management – accounting, cash flow management and financial advice.

    I would eventually like to start my own business servicing this segment but would like to better understand the gaps, the under-served areas to tweek my business model before plunging in. I am particularly interested in how technology can be better used to service this segment.

    I tried to have a conversation with my accountant but he did not seem motivated enough to explore it. I am looking for people who can work with me on alternative business models and perhaps even work on a start up together if the value proposition is validated by our research.

    Some areas I am interested in further exploring are

    1. Provision of accounting/business services to small/micro business – yes I know there are a plethora of these but I don’t see the existence of a successful business model that provides the basic needs at a affordable cost and allows collaboration (by leveraging technology) with the business owner on a ongoing basis.

    2. Provision of financial advice/planning for such businesses and eventually the mass market.

    If anyone is interested in collaborating/researching this with me a, I would love to hear from you.
