Who Is Behind This?

Polpo Group, which is the holding company that owns Jakt, a multi-million dollar agency

Why Are We Doing This?

We’ve been running Jakt for almost 7 years. Along the way, we’ve learned a ton.

One thing that has been crucial to our success and profitability each year is a strong understanding of finance, financial engineering and accounting.

We’re talking about the type of stuff you don’t just go to an accountant for, but is absolutely crucial to running a healthy and profitable business.

We deeply understand what it’s like to run a business, especially an agency. We’ve lived it for over 6 years. This is what makes us uniquely capable of offering this service.

We’ve constructed our own ideal accounting + finance offering, and now want to offer it to others.

When designing our service and pricing, our goal was to offer a better quality service than you could hire for full time at a cost that is less than a full time hire.

It’s what we wanted for ourselves at Jakt, so we created it.

The offering below is the exact same offering we use at Jakt and exactly the same pricing we pay for it. We are eating our own dog food. We’re not asking you to buy something we wouldn’t buy ourselves.
