In 2003, Mike McDerment was run­ning a small de­sign agency when he ac­ci­den­tally lost an in­voice. The frus­tra­tion that fol­lowed in­spired him to code his own cloud-based record-keep­ing sys­tem, which quickly evolved into Fresh­Books. It’s now the go-to in­voic­ing tool for 10 mil­lion free­lancers and small busi­nesses, in­clud­ing the Park­dale taque­ria Grand Elec­tric and Bell­woods Brew­ery on Oss­ing­ton. Last month, McDerment and his team re­launched the ser­vice with a slew of new fea­tures to ac­com­mo­date the ev­er­chang­ing, in­creas­ingly on-de­mand work­force.
