The background story

Uome is a platform that was created to make self-employed life simple and enables users to run their businesses from their phones. Users can build client relationships, send invoices, get paid, do their tax preparation, and send project updates all in one place.

Uome was founded by Jason Halstead a financial technologist with his own capital initially before opening up for funding and was launched to the UK market in spring 2022. Jason created Uome because he wanted to empower the self-employed community, particularly small businesses, creatives, entrepreneurs, tradespeople, accountants, consultants and freelancers to stay on top of their finances.

Jason spent years working as a freelancer in the fintech space and understands how important it is to stay on top of finances and build client relationships. Having worked with contractors as well as having friends that worked in a variety of self-employed sectors he was keen to simplify and reduce the stress of running a business.
