Welcome to our latest LumiQ Live event, featuring a fireside chat with Jamie Shulman, Co-Founder & Co-CEO of Toronto’s cloud accounting start-up, Hubdoc. Hubdoc automatically fetches financial data from over 700 services, including utilities, telecom providers, banks and online vendors. That data can then be integrated into accounting services such as Xero.

In our chat you’ll hear about Jamie’s journey from founding Hubdoc in 2011 to being acquired by Xero for $70M USD in 2018. We’ll be getting deep into the acquisition process, why Hubdoc was attractive to Xero, and Jamie’s insights on building a company that is primed to be bought. With the acquisition behind them, we’ll also look towards the future of Hubdoc as part of the Xero family and the state of accounting-tech in Canada.

If you’re interested in accounting tech or entrepreneurship you won’t want to miss this one, so join us at OneEleven for a wonderful evening of networking, food/drinks & learning!

*Snacks and refreshments will be served during networking.
