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 Graham Wylie. Some eight years later, Sage was listed on the London Stock Exchange with a £20m valuation.
Sage has over 12,000 employees and serves millions of customers in 24 countries across Europe, Africa, Australia, Asia, Latin America, and North America.
Sage is the market leader for integrated accounting, payroll, and payment systems, supporting the ambition of the world’s entrepreneurs.
