About Helm

Real world experience, real world expertise.

A practical solution

Based on our experience, Helm was designed with the broader context of the accounting function in mind. It wasn’t created just to solve a single pain point. Our team truly understands the ups and downs of running a business, and the real planning it takes to succeed.

We believe the result is a truly powerful platform, one beneficial to advisors and businesses alike.

Our Origins

Before Helm was ‘Helm’, Kelvin Gieck and Twyla Verhelst wanted a tool to make managing cash, creating cash flow forecasts, and communicating results with clients quick and easy at their firm Twenty-Eighty Financial – an advisory firm focused on fractional CFO services for small businesses. 

They explored their options, but couldn’t find what they were looking for, so they built Helm!

Today Helm helps bookkeepers, advisors and small business around the world with quick and easy cash flow forecasting and management.
