Qonto was born out of frustration. As Alexandre and Steve were building their first company together, they felt bogged down by their own banking experience. It was time-consuming. It was complex. It also lacked the modern tools that progressive companies need.
So, they decided to create a banking product they would've loved as entrepreneurs. One that when you use it, just seems to "click". Our ambition is crystal clear: we want to build the best business finance solution. By harnessing technology and design. And by offering fair and transparent pricing.
We think SMEs have been neglected for too long. Traditional banks have failed to propose a banking experience fit for the modern entrepreneur. Our goal? To dust off the old banking experience and be the power pack for small businesses.
No more waiting in line. As little paperwork as possible. First-class customer support. We are driven by our desire to save our customers time. Time that they can reclaim for forging their own future. And that’s something we think is pretty valuable.
Business finance isn't always fun. But it can be done quicker. From opening an account to managing it day-to-day, we want our customers' experience to be the best out there.
So much more than just a business account, Qonto creates automated tools that help companies motor through their accounting and expenses.
Our pricing is fair and totally transparent. Our customer support is swift and thorough. Our goal is to sweat the small stuff so that entrepreneurs can focus their time and energy on what matters.
