The Intuit Story


Intuit was founded in 1983 by Scott Cook. As story goes, he was sitting at the kitchen table watching his wife struggle to reconcile the family’s accounts, when he realised that there had to be a easier and faster way. And so he founded a startup named Intuit.


Intuit is in over 19 locations across 9 countries, with over 9000 employees worldwide. And Intuit’s cornerstone product, QuickBooks Online, is the world's leading online cloud accounting solution for small businesses and their financial advisors.
