Congrats @sashaorloff and team! Proud to be supporting in a small way. You've been such a champion for founders the last few years -- to that end, can you give the PH community an insight into how you navigated the idea maze with Puzzle early on?

Love what Puzzle is doing and who they're doing it for (me!). Being a founder is hard enough, let alone having to navigate all the accounting, taxation, compliance, etc. needs as the biz starts and expands. Puzzle gets this exactly right. One thing we know for sure is the future isn't archaic accounting software, because you shouldn't need to master complex workflows & have to hire a team of bookkeepers and accountants just to gain any value from your financials. The future is real-time, automated, and more like a copilot for helping to run the most critical parts of a business. Puzzle is built for that from day one.

Finally, a beautiful accounting software that made organizing, categorizing, and financial planning less of a pain. I used to have a QuickBooks account for each of my businesses. It was clunky, but I didn't know we have better options until Puzzle. My favorite feature is the clear visualization of runway, plus the onboarding support from a startup CPA. He got my questions clarified swiftly. The CX itself made the product worth trying. I have enabled their AI autopilot, which helps flagging new transactions that they haven't seen before, and I can just reply with the category over email. Haven't used that enough to know whether it's useful or gimmicky. I have hopes!

It's ridiculous that we are building toward general AI yet can't even get real time financials - about time this changes. We all know Quickbooks sucks, but unseating them from their throne is another story, and can't think of a better team to do it than Sasha and the Puzzle team. Go team!

Accounting has been a subject of fear for founders during the entire Quickbooks era. As Stripe and Gusto did to payments and payroll, I expect Puzzle to do the same for Accounting.

We switched over from Pilot/Quickbooks (don't sign with Pilot, trust me) to Puzzle, which means going from a total sh*tshow to a world where I actually look forward to doing all my simple startup accounting myself. The team has been incredible.

Congrats @sasha_orloff and team on the launch. We've been using Puzzle for a few months and love all the key founder friendly features. It highlights all the metrics startups need upfront and trims out all the painful admin with bookkeeping. Some favorites are the powerful auto-categorization of expenses, the simple email summary of money-in and money-out is extremely helpful, MRR/ARR views, and the multiple views of burn. The burn feature is super valuable for founders and that alone is worth the signup. As background, when I setup the account to test, I DM'd Sasha on Twitter. He replied and setup calls with us and their team to help learn about how we have been using the platform. So not only is it a tool for founders but - Puzzle is practicing what they preach as a startup. 10/10 recommend and I'm hopeful Puzzle can unseat Quickbooks over the next 5 years

I just started using Puzzle last month and it's really quite good. I'm moving over from Bench. When I expressed interest in Puzzle, Luke Frye, their CX head, reached out and personally answered questions and helped me onboard. Now, I get to see an always up-to-date Runway Run Rate, which in this economy, is quite helpful 😅

Great job on the launch @hungryhelen! Does Puzzle also integrate with other payment platforms apart from Stripe? What type of reports and data analysis does Puzzle have? Keep up the great work and congratulations to the entire Puzzle team.

Huge congrats to @sashaorloff and the rest of the Puzzle team! Puzzle is a magical product and this is a huge problem space so I'm psyched to see what you build.
