FreshBooks in the Financial Post

April 21, 2008

FreshBooks got a nice mention in the Financial Post this weekend about how we’re helping to green businesses. There is more about our history in the article, but this is my favourite part:

Perhaps FreshBooks’ biggest environmental impact is the greening of other businesses in 100 countries. “We are empowering people to work from home or remote locations, so less travel is involved. The feedback we get on our blog, is ‘the best thing I’ve done to green my business is I’ve stopped driving to work.’ “

This is a really exciting aspect of what FreshBooks does — we enable an emerging class of service-oriented professionals who choose to work more independently and more remotely than has been known before, and we’re honoured and humbled to be supporting them in this way.
