The Story of Francis

"We know first-hand the ups and downs of running businesses in spreadsheets. So we found a new way."

Francis was created out of Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT) by co-founders Sune Gynthersen, August Gjede, and William Pontoppidan, during William’s time there.

August and William had frustrating experiences managing business finances in traditional spreadsheets, and one day had enough.

With the team’s excitement for modern software design and no-code, they set out to rethink budgeting for forward-thinking teams.

Saving the world one spreadsheet at a time.

Our vision is to strengthen the confidence of business leaders
