FreshBooks started in 2003 when the company’s founder Mike McDerment accidentally saved over an old invoice, meaning he had lost hours of work. This made Mike realise that there had to be a better way and since what he wanted did not exist, he decided to create it himself.
From a small company that operated from the basement, FreshBooks has grown into a company with over 500 employees and offices around the world. FreshBooks programmes are now used by over 30 million people in over 160 countries to manage their invoices, payments, expenses, and financial reports. FreshBooks can help business owners to run their companies more efficiently and save time.
