An Enlightened Take on Small Business.
Our mission is to serve you – the entrepreneur – by making the most advanced business insights and tools simple, easy, and affordable.
Created by a team of former consultants, portfolio managers, and Fortune 500 executives, BodeTree is an alternative to overcomplicated and overpriced software and services currently available to small business. We help entrepreneurs focus on doing what they love by making financial management easy.
The Legend of the BodeTree
BodeTree (pronounced: boh-dee tree) was inspired by the Buddhist legend of Buddha and the sacred tree called the Bodhi Tree. This tree was the place that Buddha reached nirvana, or the highest state of enlightenment, through dedicated meditation.
At BodeTree we had our own moment of insight and decided to combine our experiences to create tools that would help entrepreneurs make sense of their finances. We hope our approach makes finance more fun and empowers a new generation of enlightened entrepreneurs.
