In 2012, Mike Whitmire, then a senior accountant for recently-IPOed Cornerstone OnDemand, left the stable — yet unforgiving — world of accounting to do something he had always hoped to do: Start a business.
Eight years later, that business, FloQast has raised over $93 million in venture capital and boasts over 1,000 customers, establishing it as a cornerstone of the Los Angeles Tech Community — “Silicon Beach” — with Mike Whitmire, accountant-turned-CEO as one of its more prominent success stories.
In his new podcast, Blood, Sweat, and Balance Sheets, Mike will be joined by fellow entrepreneurs, investors, accountants, and more to discuss the trials and tribulations of starting a tech company — while pulling back the curtain on some of the world’s most successful companies in the process.
