Sai is a financial technology start-up on a mission to help artists and creatives take charge of their money 💰
As creatives and artists ourselves, we know the impact money management can have on your mental health, career growth, and ability to focus on your craft.
Why taxes? After two years of research, dozens of interviews, and personal lived experience, tax season emerged as the number one stressor for artists and creatives. It was overwhelming and anxiety-inducing. The language used by accountants felt inaccessible and confusing. No one knew the answers to grant funding questions and laughed when asked what expense category [insert weird art purchase] fell into. Even arts-centric tax preparers placed the task of receipt organizing and expense categorization onto the shoulders of overworked, underpaid creatives.
We’re here to change the game.
With decades of experience in arts leadership, business development, and computer engineering, the Sai team is in a unique position to remove the stress, overwhelm, and confusion artists face when it comes to all things money.
Taxes are just the beginning. 💙
