About Skopos Collective

Skopos Collective offers independent designers, modern manufacturers, and mission-driven businesses the financial clarity needed to grow. We implement financial processes, organize data, and crunch numbers with our clients so they can make informed decisions for their business and other stakeholders.


We are a Brooklyn-based, female-led consultancy rooted in community values. We believe business ownership should not be restricted to a privileged few. Locally-owned businesses have an extraordinary impact on our communities, and we’re here to help them deepen roots where they’re planted. 


Most importantly, business owners don’t know what they don’t know. We believe too many small business owners feel anxious or in the dark about their business finances because they’ve never had a strong business financial partner—we want to change that.
