Intuit was founded in 1983 by Scott Cook. As the story goes, Mr Cook came up with the idea to start his own company as he sat at the kitchen table and watched his wife struggle to reconcile the family’s accounts. At the time, personal computers were just making an appearance, and Mr Cook though there might be a market for simple software that would help people manage their finances.
So, he founded Intuit.
More than two decades on, Intuit is still considered a 'start-up', as it strives to keep innovating based on customer insights from our Follow-Me-Home program. The program is designed to gain deep customer empathy and solve key problems.
Intuit has 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.
