“Running a small business at any time is daunting,” said Felix Rodriguez, Finally co-founder and CEO. “Juggling cash flow, taxes and bookkeeping can often be a distraction from running and growing their actual businesses. Our mission at Finally is to relieve the burdens on small business owners and to level the playing field. This new funding will enable us to continue to support SMBs.”

Founded in 2018 and headquartered in Miami, Florida, Finally was also co-founded by Edwin Mejia, director of business development, and COO Glennys Rodriguez, and helps SMBs automate accounting, finance and other back-office functions.
