Ed Molyneux, FreeAgent

After completing his degree in Engineering and Computer Science, Ed spent a decade flying military fast jets in the RAF before taking the plunge into freelance IT consultancy in 2003. However, he found that trying to balance his books armed only with a spreadsheet was a painful process, and decided that freelancers needed a simpler and more intuitive way to manage their accounts.

The result was FreeAgent, which Ed went on to co-found in 2007 with the aim of democratising accounting for micro-businesses and to help them work better with their accountants. The company started life in Edinburgh as a three-man operation, but has now grown to more than 100 staff and is the market leader in cloud accounting specifically designed for freelancers, contractors, micro-businesses and the accountants who work with them.
