The business advisor
"I've built my business like I've built my life, around connections and community. My friends, family, business, and city – these are all things that are important to me."
Like the business builders we serve, Sage began as a modest British startup with a big ambition.
Our founder David Goldman wanted to automate accounting processes in his own business. Working with a team of Newcastle University students, he developed software to make it happen – and realised other businesses could benefit from this too. In 1981, our founder David Goldman faced a problem. He wanted to create quotes quickly for his print business and keep track of his accounts. So David worked with a team from Newcastle including Dr. Paul Muller, a computer expert who worked with NASA, and student Paul Graham. Some eight years later, Sage was listed on the London Stock Exchange with a £20m valuation.
By 2015, Sage had 13,000 employees across 23 countries and revenues of £1,436 million, and today we work with millions of business people in all types of industries around the world. Today, Sage has 13,000 employees and serves millions of customers in 23 countries across Europe, Africa, Australia, Asia, Latin America, and North America.
Our solutions manage accounting, HR, payroll, payments, assets, construction, real estate, and enterprise systems.
They travel with business builders wherever they’re needed – in the cloud, on-premise, or both – offering the freedom to work with mobility. Our solutions fit the needs of startup, scale-up, and enterprise companies – whether that means staying on top of their finances, empowering their people, or unleashing their power to grow.
