At Color Accounting we believe we are pushing in the direction of educational equality.
We are committed to democratizing accounting literacy by making the skill easy and accessible to all. We advocate for the adoption of new and innovative teaching approaches. The fewer people who need to rewrite failed exams, pay for expensive tutoring - and who aim lower in their careers than they should - the better.
We are convinced that making accounting easy to learn is a step toward making education available to all who want it and deserve it.
Here’s to you, Mr Levy. Godspeed on your journey.
