Let’s start at the beginning
Wave was founded in 2009 by Kirk Simpson and James Lochrie with a rooted belief that accounting software should be free for small businesses. We officially launched in 2010 and have grown to serve millions of business owners, entrepreneurs, and freelancers around the world.
At Wave, we wholeheartedly believe in entrepreneurs and in the journey of business growth. We’ve lived it—it’s our story, too. We started with seven employees and a vision. Today, we have grown to a full suite of award-winning financial services and software—simplifying the way millions of small businesses make money, spend money, and track money.
