Harvest is a web-based time tracking and invoicing application relied on by thousands of people around the world, from freelancers to small businesses to departments of Fortune 500 companies. Harvest founders Danny Wen and Shawn Liu had searched for tools to help their agency scale with more efficient methods to track time and send invoices. Unable to find one, they invested their own time, energy, and money into creating what they knew was a better way to run the business—and Harvest was born.

The CreativeMornings/NYC Choir makes its musical debut!
We’re in for a special treat this month! After experiencing the joy of communal singing, our host, Tina Roth Eisenberg, decided that the CreativeMornings community should have its very own choir. We asked around and were surprised by the astounding level of interest! Now a few months in, our newly formed choir, led by Alex Canovas, is ready for its musical debut at National Sawdust. We can’t wait to sing for you!
