Our Story

In 2001, at the ages of 23 and 24, Biztree founders Bruno Goulet and Jonathan Defoy started building the original Business in a Box product. Working in the marketing department for a fast-growing software company, they had little time to waste writing wordy contracts and business documents. The Business in a Box creators soon realized that the pain of writing business documents was not unique to their situation or due to their lack of resources at the time. Surveying their peers, they quickly realized that the pain was universal and shared by almost every business owner.

"In every business venture we started, we never got over the pain of writing documents," explains CEO Bruno Goulet. "If only there were a quick and painless way to get all these documents written…" he recalls. They did not want to reinvent the wheel; they wanted to provide a solution, so they hired numerous consultants and lawyers to build the documents.

Two decades later, Business in a Box has evolved into much more than a repository of document templates; it's now a comprehensive productivity ecosystem. Alongside the expansive collection of over 3,000+ business and legal document templates, the platform now offers a robust project and task management application. This integration allows users to collaborate seamlessly through video and audio calls, live chats, and a shared digital workspace. The suite also includes versatile tools like spreadsheets for data collection, file storage and sharing capabilities, and an innovative folder system to organize the digital workspace. This transformation from a simple document template provider to a multifaceted business tool reflects the founders' commitment to addressing the evolving needs of entrepreneurs and business managers globally.

Biztree's Business in a Box stands as a testament to the power of innovation and understanding market needs. From its inception as a solution to the cumbersome process of document creation, it has grown into a vital tool that empowers businesses to streamline operations and enhance productivity.
