Finli was created to help small businesses

Who We Are

Finli is made up of people who care deeply about financially lifting the small businesses in our communities – that’s where the name “finli” (financial lift) comes from!

We’ve put together a team of payments, technology, and service experts to be able to provide an excellent product at a reasonable price that provides an outstanding value to those who use it.

We do this to help small businesses, solopreneurs, and freelancers with big plans because we care about empowering the dreams of people who aspire to do more.

Lori Shao, CEO

Prior to becoming an entrepreneur herself, Lori spent 17 years climbing the corporate ladder in various roles at Fortune 500 companies with a deep focus on payment technology and innovation. On the personal side, Lori grew up in a working class household, witnessing first hand that there is no lack of skill and grit but there is a lack of access to the right tools. She set out to build those tools that empower everyday Americans to springboard to new heights. Lori resides in Los Angeles with her husband Derek, two human children and 11 non-human children.
