I know bookkeeping can be tedious because I’ve done it. In college, I ran the finances for my college newspaper. Every month I would compile invoices, bills, bank accounts, and payroll data to update our financial statements - and determine whether we were making or losing (mostly losing) money. It was by far my least favorite responsibility at the paper, and I spent hours and hours ticking and tying numbers by hand. This experience has stayed with me, so much so that when I joined Index many years later it was one of the markets I hoped to invest in. I knew that in the right hands, technology could completely revolutionize this space.
