Last week accounting automation service Blackline listed on the NASDAQ stock exchange with a valuation of over a billion dollars.
The listing was a triumph for the company’s founder and CEO Therese Tucker who started the company in 2005 after a client asked her to find a way to manage the ten thousand spreadsheet their firm used for accounts reconciliation.
We spoke to Therese last year during a visit to Australia where she described some of the challenges of building a business.
Therese’s journey is an interesting, and inspiring, tale of how you don’t have to be a twenty something white guy to build a billion dollar tech business. Her story is worth listening to.
