Tiago is an experienced entrepreneur from Portugal who’s been working as a software development consultant since leaving Codeplace in April 2017 - a company he founded with friends in 2014.
He discovered LeapIN while looking for an alternative to the setup for solopreneurs in Portugal. They made life difficult with high maintenance costs and unfriendly regulations.
“Anywhere I’m located, I can upload my expenses and create invoices easily. It’s important that I can keep track of my company, rather than waiting for a monthly update (and sometimes shock!) from an accountant.”
