About this event

Nova Scotia is fast becoming one of Canada's leading technology and innovation hubs.

Building on this momentum, FreshBooks -- a Canadian-founded global tech unicorn -- is putting down roots in Halifax Nova Scotia with a goal of hiring at least 50 new FreshBookers across Research & Development, Marketing, Customer Support, and more in the coming years. To celebrate, FreshBooks has teamed up with Halihax to bring the city's technology community together on November 10th in a truly Nova Scotian way -- for a toast on the waterfront.

This event will bring local technology and business leaders together to meet, socialize, and learn from one another:

Jeff Andersen, co-founder of Halihax, will introduce the Halihax organization, history of the community, and give a first look at the results from the 2022 Halihax Community Survey.

Amanda Jacob (Design), Richard Schaefer (Engineering), and Carmine De Leon (Product Management) from FreshBooks will share the ups (and downs) of building one of the company's newest product launches, Chart of Accounts, proving that accounting software is anything but boring.

Drinks and appetizers will be available.

Come join us as we celebrate FreshBooks' new home in the province.
