    Presentation Overview

    Dear fellow founders,
    Rene Lacerte and Martin Gates founded PayCycle in 1999, after successful careers at Intuit, and have grown it into a leading, award-winning payroll service for small business. Starting with a significant angel round, they went on to raise 3 venture rounds of funding, assembled an all-star slate of advisors and hired former executives from Fenwick & West, Intuit, Adobe, and leading start-ups. Along the way they struck deals with Microsoft Money, QuickBooks Online, banks, even the federal government, and launched services for accountants as well as small businesses, handling federal and state payroll taxes in all 50 states. PayCycle's awards include a PC Magazine "Five Star Excellence" rating two years in a row, and numerous others.

    Come hear how Rene and his team successfully launched and steered an innovative company through Silicon Valley's recent down cycle and into the current upswing, and how they continue to thrive and grow.
