Intuit Developer Growth Program fall 2023 cohort features accountant panelists

Following on the heels of the successful pilot of the Developer Growth Program, we are fully launching the program with five QuickBooks app developers that make up our new fall cohort. This includes participation by three accountant-related panelists: Jeff Wilson II, CPA/PFS, CGMA, CFE, CDFA; Helina Patience, CPA, CMA; and Jacint Tumacder.

All about the fall cohort

The Intuit Developer Growth Program is designed to help app developers succeed with more than 5.9 million small businesses around the world that run on QuickBooks Online. Our objectives for the program include helping developers maximize their marketing impact, connect with more customers, and increase their app revenue.

We are committed to finding new ways to help app developers grow their business, while providing them with the best tools and support to create innovative applications to meet the needs of small- to medium-sized companies, as well as accountants who use the apps themselves and recommend them for their clients.

The fall cohort is participating in the program for the next five months, and each developer will work closely with the Intuit Developer group to identify and test growth opportunities. During that time, the cohort will have access to an exclusive network of accountants, UX experts, solution architects, and go-to-market managers, as well as the opportunity to gain increased visibility within our QuickBooks and developer communities. They’ll also have the opportunity to become members of the Intuit Developer Council after they “graduate.”
