This week Homebrew portfolio company Abacus announced its acquisition by Certify. We first met New York-based Abacus while the product was still formative but it was clear the founding team clearly had the combination of vision, mission and grit that sets great startups apart. Homebrew became a supporting investor in their seed round and got a front row seat to watching them develop a truly well-designed product. We won’t go so far as to suggest they made expense reporting fun, but how about 99% less painful for everyone involved? Congratulations to the Abacus team!
