About Qonto

Our story

The idea of Qonto was born from a frustration: as Alex and Steve were building together their first startup ( - bought in 2015), they were stricken by the lack of service banks could offer to manage their daily tasks and simplify their accounting. Today's technology enables to drastically enhance the productivity and create pleasure at the same time; the two founders were convinced that something could be done within this field and they started working on Qonto in April 2016.

Our mission

The mission was consequently very clear: to build the best banking service for SMEs by mixing advanced technology, optimized processes and an elegant design. We think that SMEs have been neglected for too long and that the traditional actors have failed to propose a banking experience adapted to the needs of entrepreneurs. The professional banking should be efficient, good looking and cheap. Our mission is to dust off the banking experience!
