Born and raised in Nottingham, UK, Lisa Newton moved to London to study Accounting with Marketing at Middlesex University. Graduating with a first class honours degree, she went on to do a MSc in Investment Management at City University. In the same month of the Masters graduation ceremony at City, Lisa formed Boogles Ltd with £150. Her mum put in £50, and Lisa used £100 of her overdraft.
Boogles primarily began as a bookkeeping service but has since expanded, and moved into other markets – such as bookkeeping franchise, bookkeeping training courses, bookkeeping books and products such as computer maths games for children.
