What our customers are saying

Qonto was a huge relief! We didn’t want to go back to a bank branch to open the bank account for our UG. With Qonto, opening an account online took no more than ten minutes. Paying the capital contribution was also easy: with a simple transfer to the new bank account, it was already done.”

Matthias Weingärtner - founder of freetogo
