Wave Financial We make awesome, cloud-based, integrated software and tools for small businesses. So far, that includes Invoicing, Accounting, Payroll, Payments and more, plus Personal Finance Software, too. We make it for people running businesses with 9 employees or less. Which is to say, when we zero in on what to include in our features, it's freelancers, contractors, entrepreneurs, and owners of companies with 9 employees or less that we keep in mind. We do it because most "small business software" isn't actually built for small businesses. It's really meant for medium-sized businesses with dozens and sometimes hundreds of employees. (Just look at how complicated and expensive they are...!) But there's a world of difference between the needs of a 5-person company and a 55-person company. So we build Wave for businesses with 9 employees or less, including all those one-person shops out there. And that makes for a much better fit between our products and your needs.
