Any successful entrepreneur with a bio that includes the words, ‘which culminated in my arrest at Atlanta Airport with 6,500 ecstacy tablets‘ is not your usual sort of guy.

Duane says he became an entrepreneur after the subsequent, almost inevitable, prison sentence because he was left with no alternative given the ‘large black hole in my CV’. He set up a web design business with the help of a grant from The Prince’s Trust a UK based organisation to help give people a second chance.

Almost immediately, he hit a problem. He couldn’t understand why accounts programmes were so complicated. This became the realisation that was the inspiration for KashFlow, a SaaS based simple web accounting package for small business.
