About Zeitgold

At Zeitgold, we come to work every day because we want to solve the biggest problems for small business owners. For most small business owners, running their company means being overwhelmed by bureaucracy and administrative work every day. Restaurant owners spend multiple hours per week paying supplier invoices. Craftsmen spend even more time making sure their own invoices get paid. If something unexpected comes up, there is usually nobody who can help. Something is broken. Our mission is to free small business owners from paperwork. We empower our clients to get all financial administration tasks (paying suppliers, collections, bookkeeping, accounting, payroll) done in less than 10 minutes per day on their smartphones with our radically simple app. This saves our customers regularly more than 10 hours per week. To provide our uniquely intuitive user experience, we re-designed the entire accounting process end-to-end. We combine our experts and artificial intelligence to offer an end-to-end solution for managing the financials of cafés, restaurants, small retailers, and craftsmen. Zeitgold was founded in 2015 by seasoned entrepreneurs with vast knowledge in the the small business domain (previously co-founders of SumUp), and extensive experience with building innovative data products (8200 alum). We are backed by a number of well-known business angels from Germany, Silicon Valley, and Israel, as well as Holtzbrinck Ventures (investor also in Zalando, Flixbus, and SumUp) and Battery Ventures (investor also in GoEuro and N26).
