Today, on December 17th, 2019, we are delighted to announce a strategic seed raise of $3.4 M. Vestigo Ventures, who invest in transformative fintech companies, led the round and is joined by Gumi Cryptos, Castle Island Ventures, Unblock Ventures, and Migration Capital.
ZenLedger has helped thousands of cryptocurrency investors and accountants with tax filings and financial analysis, exceeding $1B of crypto transactions with significant tax and time savings, and this recent funding will allow us to invest heavily in customer support and product development.
ZenLedger is finishing financial year 2019 with over 500% year over year growth, our team has grown by 30%. We just doubled the size of our support team and now have a 24/7 customer service with crypto tax experts based in each time zone of the United States. Customers often save dozens of hours and thousands of dollars, freeing them to focus on growing their investments. ZenLedger brings a human touch as well, making it easy for you to get help anytime by phone, chat, or email because some people dislike math, and everyone dislikes taxes. We provide a hero-class customer service to our clients. And that's what you need when taxes are stressing you out.
A hero-class customer support has always been a big focus for ZenLedger. Pat Larsen, CEO and Co-Founder of ZenLedger.io, graduated from the U.S. Air Force Academy. As a mission commander for the U.S. Navy, he commanded search & rescue and combat medical evacuation missions on two combat tours in Iraq, and his goal was simple: to save people's lives.
“We started ZenLedger because we knew we could help crypto investors and provide a valuable tax service while also helping the overall crypto and blockchain community to flourish by staying on the right side of the law. We set out to have great customer service, a fast and easy customer experience, and a professional grade product and I believe we’ve done that. I’m so proud of our team and really excited by what we can accomplish as we improve our tax, financial analysis, and blockchain analysis products for crypto investors and accountants. We can continue to hire great developers, marketers, and customer success specialists."
Mark Casady, Founder & General Partner at Vestigo: “ZenLedger is the kind of company we love to back: great leadership, technology driven, and highly innovative. Digital assets are a great way for consumers to gain diversification. ZenLedger has built what is needed for tax infrastructure for this new market. We look forward to Pat and the team using this investment to build its business into the market leader.”
Miko Matsumura, General Partner at Gumi Cryptos added: “ZenLedger is the leading provider in the fast-growing area of tax accounting for cryptographic assets. We're proud to invest in what will undoubtedly be the gold standard for tax treatment in our industry.”
We have the ambitious goal to make taxes easy for cryptocurrency investors and their accountants, saving them stress, time, and money. ZenLedger helps investors, miners, and traders to avoid overpaying on taxes, allowing them to deploy more capital to invest. The software takes in transaction information from hundreds of exchanges, wallets, and blockchains to produce a full profit & loss, tax loss harvesting analysis, Schedule D, 8949, Fincen 114 FBAR, FATCA, and a full audit package.
We would like to thank all of our clients for their trust and business. We will continue to provide best in class customer service and the best technology on the market, so that your tax season 2019 goes as smoothly as possible!
