Leslie launched the company on personal savings and a seed investment from Growney Ventures, bagged at the annual business plan competition at the University of Chicago Booth School of Business. “I helped develop the technology of putting cameras into smart phones for recreational purposes [at Microsoft], and I felt there was a missing opportunity for using that feature for business purposes,” he says.Â He hopes to win some of the $800 million market for reporting-simplification tools.
