As the saying goes, “do what you love, and you’ll never work a day in your life.” While usually easier said than done, Evan Varsamis and his lifelong friends, Cassie and Michael, found a way to follow this advice when they started Gadget Flow.
When you think ‘startup,’ you usually don’t think about innovations in food—especially pizza, which has changed very little over the last half-century.
There is, after all, something classic about pizza. All you have to do is dial up the nearest pizza chain, and voila, pizza arrives outside your door, not thirty minutes later.
Even though many would say the pizzas they make are appetizing, satisfactory, and above all, consistent, Zume Pizza’s founders knew there was much room for improvement. With a passion for food and a knack for thinking outside of the box, Zume Pizza is flipping the industry on its head with an integration of new technology and a refreshing business model.
ShearShare, like most great business ideas, originated at the intersection of expertise and necessity. The ShearShare mobile app helps barbers and cosmetologists find open booths to work while salon owners turn their empty chairs into extra dollars.

This month's featured client stands out for more than just their innovative product: they are one of our very few clients whose business is based in another country. Founded in Victoria, British Columbia two years ago, Sendwithus has experienced a remarkable amount of growth in a short amount of time thanks to hard work, innovation, and a little help from a certain San Francisco-based accounting software platform.
It’s safe to say that most great ideas spring from necessity, and businesses are no different. InDinero was created because businesses struggled to manage their accounting while juggling the demands of running a business: we corrected this issue by filling the need for modern back-office solutions for businesses. This month’s client spotlight blog focuses on a company that was created in a similar way: what inDinero does for accounting, San Francisco-based Mist.io does for infrastructure management.
Today’s blog is all about you: our clients! From now on, we will be regularly posting “Client Spotlight” articles highlighting some of inDinero’s awesome clients, their goals and visions, and how inDinero helps them simplify their accounting and finances. Today, we want to take a moment to shine the spotlight on Beeminder, an inDinero client who specializes in helping its customers reach their goals through a very unique and effective incentivizing process.
Founders and business owners, this one goes out to you. Meet our friends at UpCounsel!
