Finnish Holvi offers clarified banking for groups & small business teams
My latest Springwise spotting comes from the entrepreneurial Kristoffer Lawson aka The Travelling Salesman who has made a number of inspirational guest appearances in my courses in Metropolia Business School. Kristoffer has together with his team launched a new company called Holvi.
Billed as “a revolutionary netbanking service for creative projects and group activities,” Finnish Holvi aims to serve such users with a raft of business-oriented functions. Kristoffer has noted on Holvi’s twitter account @HolviCom as regards the Springwise spotting that (though we don’t currently do small businesses — only fun projects + activity groups).
New from the founders of Scred — which I spotted and Springwise reviewed back in 2009 — Holvi aims to give small teams a better understanding of how their money is spent and received. Users can create a budget for their activities and see a graphical report of everything happening in real time, for instance. They can also build income by selling tickets and t-shirts, for example, and then see their bookkeeping updated in real time. Expense claims can be received, fully tagged and categorized, and photos of receipts can even be uploaded directly to the site. Meanwhile, users can pay bills as they would with any internet bank; every payment is tagged and automatically updated to their budget reports.
Holvi is currently in closed pilot testing. Interested users, however, can apply for early access on the site.
