Mike McDerment, the CEO of Toronto-based invoicing startup FreshBooks, is organizing a workshop at the Future of Web Apps (FOWA) conference being held in Miami over the next couple of days. His workshop on “How to build a web app from A-Z” is already completely sold out. Here’s Mike’s bio from the event page:
Mike is the co-founder and CEO of FreshBooks, planet earth’s leading online invoicing app for service oriented professionals, freelancers and teams. Back in 2003, Mike built FreshBooks for his design firm and scratched his own itch. Since launching in May 2004 FreshBooks has touched over 600,000 lives and Mike and his team dedicate themselves to being a great service for people who love their work, and want to focus on it – instead of focusing on their paperwork.
Mike has been a fantastic presence in Toronto’s startup community, from building a successful web-based business himself, to hosting Founders Lunch at his company’s office to support other tech entrepreneurs in town, and also being an organizer of the largest web conference in Canada – Mesh (coming up in April ’09).
