Intuit was founded by Scott Cook and Tom Proulx in Palo Alto, California in 1983. Cook got the idea while working at Procter & Gamble, realizing that computers would soon replace paper-pencil-based accounting.

Intuit’s customer demographic includes small and medium businesses, accountants, and individuals.
Globally, the company has about 50 million customers.
