Campfire, the Y Combinator-backed startup modernizing accounting software for startups and midsize companies, today announced it closed a $3.5 million seed funding round led by Foundation Capital and joined by Y Combinator and Twenty Two Ventures.

Powering the accounting for modern teams
While legacy accounting solutions designed for sole proprietors or huge conglomerates across industries, Campfire is focused on serving startups and mid-size technology companies. These companies require user-friendly software, modern APIs for building custom workflows and integrations, and features that bridge the gap between basic functionality and enterprise-level complexity. Campfire is both simple and scalable, offering two distinct yet synergistic products: Revenue Automation and Core Accounting.

Campfire secures $3.5M in funding and Y Combinator-backing for its modern accounting platform for mid-size companies.

Campfire’s Revenue Automation software is a comprehensive suite of tools for revenue recognition, invoicing, billing, and insightful KPI reporting. Its Core Accounting product, which was publicly announced today after an extended private beta with customers of various sizes, includes core accounting features such as financial reporting, a general ledger that supports multi-entity and currency consolidation, and treasury management, all complemented by seamless integrations and scalable to millions of transactions. Together, these products form a powerful combination that makes accounting and financial reporting more efficient, intuitive, and impactful.

“Our mission is to give accounting and finance teams superpowers to do their best work by automating mundane tasks so they can focus on high-value, strategic work,” said John Glasgow, Chief Executive Officer and Co-founder of Campfire.

Angus Davis, General Partner at Foundation Capital that led the funding round said, “I invested in Campfire because the founders have the deep industry experience to pull it off, the product is very impressive, and the team is shipping new features at an unbelievable pace. Campfire is the ERP I wish I had when my last company outgrew QuickBooks.”
