Australian Start Up Business Stardom

For many the idea to become an entrepreneur is planted while at school, the start up generator for some of the best business projects. For this aspiring 28 year old his big idea developed from a combination of education and work place innovation. While working at Macquarie Bank Chris Strode, a freelance software developer, had a brilliant idea; his idea was to speed up invoicing through app technology. The application is called Invoice2go and since its launch it has seen amazing success!

Invoice2go is quickly becoming the industry leader in invoice technology and has since been purchased by Accel Partners, a venture capital firm. The app is now usable in nine different languages and sees 120,000 invoices per day. The app’s aim is to help small business owners and independent contractors issue invoices and get paid for their work. With $10 billion processed in invoices each year they are certainly achieving that aim.
