“Do unto others as you'd like to have them do to you.”

In a story as timeless as tales of old, Philip McNamara set out to make a mark in the bustling world of Silicon Valley. Growing up in Ireland, he was inspired by his hardworking father, a contractor who instilled in him the values of diligence and adding value to others' lives.

Upon arriving in Silicon Valley, Philip encountered a significant challenge when incorporating his company and seeking funding. He unknowingly hired an expensive law firm that left him with an unexpected $200 bill for a voicemail. This experience sparked a desire to create a platform that would help founders connect with trustworthy companies and clients who genuinely value their products and services. Despite facing numerous hurdles and learning from his mistakes, Philip found solace in the valley's culture that allowed for second chances and rewriting one's story.

His dream, Get Proven, emerged from his own pain and struggles in Silicon Valley. Today, Get Proven stands tall as the world's best platform for curated vendor networks, connecting entrepreneurs with high-quality services and products at the lowest possible cost and fastest turnaround time.

For Philip, the essence of Get Proven lies in simplicity and connectivity. He finds joy in building something that serves people worldwide, connecting them, and helping them find what they need. As a natural connector, he sees his role as an extension of his passion for bringing people together.

While Get Proven's success seemed rapid, Philip and his team adopted a thoughtful approach, scaling at a pace that ensured top-notch value for their customers. Their focus remains on providing a user-friendly experience that fosters meaningful connections.

To Philip, a brand goes beyond aesthetics; it's about evoking a feeling. Driven by passion and determination, he embraces the journey alongside his loved ones, seeking to make a positive impact on people's lives.

In the ever-abundant world of ideas, Philip's advice is simple:

“Take that first step and just do it. Perfection may be elusive, but seizing opportunities and moving forward is the key to turning dreams into reality.”

With Get Proven, Philip McNamara weaves a tale of success, fueled by passion, efficiency, and the desire to bring simplicity and joy into people's lives, one connection at a time.

On his path to building a global legacy, Philip found a crucial ally in Puzzle. As he enthusiastically shared:

"We quit using Freshbooks and QuickBooks for Puzzle. It's simply a fundamentally better product and a shining example of how the rise of AI will transform the financial industry."

Thanks to Puzzle's AI-powered efficiency, Philip experienced significant cost and time savings. Philip loves seeing the infinite runway ahead as they remain profitable, thanks to Puzzle's real-time access to startup metrics.

Philip can't help but feel excited by the possibilities that lie ahead, all made possible by Puzzle's transformative real-time financial platform. He firmly believes that for founders, switching to Puzzle is a no-brainer, as it paves the way for growth, financial stability, and a boundless future.
