Show Notes

In this episode, we chat with Ed Molyneux, Founder and CEO of FreeAgent. FreeAgent is an award-winning accounting platform that puts businesses in charge of their finances, with over 200 employees and more than 60,000 users worldwide. You’ll hear how Ed cofounded FreeAgent back in 2007 without any background in accountancy, and how the power of ignorance played a central role in the early days of the FreeAgent journey. It was a pivotal time for a lot of new businesses coming to market, and a pivotal time for the evolution of tech too, and we chat about how much the internet’s capability played a role in Ed deciding to do what he did in those early days. We also chat about building a culture and a brand and how Ed encouraged people to buy into what he’d created. Despite FreeAgent’s worldwide success, Ed isn’t one to rest on his laurels. He’s determined to Never Settle, always looking for new and innovative ways to grow the business, which he shares with us on the show. Finally, we delve into the future of FreeAgent, the newfangled opportunities arising from the convergence of banking and accounting, and how FreeAgent are breaking new ground with helping customers in ways they couldn’t imagine before. If you’d like to keep up with Ed and the FreeAgent journey, you can follow them on twitter @Freeagent, or email Ed at ed@freeagent.com.
