It all started back in 2014.
Dominic (now CEO of Momenteo) was a freelance software engineer working in Europe, for international companies like IBM, Microsoft, Nestle and AXA. As many freelancers, he hated accounting, and he wasted a lot of time with generic accounting solutions that were just slightly better than pen and paper.
Unsatisfied, Dominic decided to build his own prototypical version of what later became Momenteo. It was a simple calendar with open tabs, where he could add his work done everyday and convert it to invoices when needed. The tool was ugly and lacked a lot of features, but it made his life so much easier. His wife, who was also freelancing, requested an access. Then during a dinner with friends (also freelancers), he brought his laptop to the table to demonstrate the power and simplicity of his tool.
They were ready to pay for it.
Seeing the interest, he then released a revamped version of his tool, with expenses and travel tracking, accounting and estimates. Momenteo, which was now in public beta, did exactly what people expected of a freelance accounting tool, without the overhead of a business product. And a hundred people loved it.
Understanding that his tool didn’t have what it takes to make it in the big leagues yet, he partnered up with Philip, who brought his product vision and marketing skills to the table. Over the last 6 months of 2015, they revamped the product and the brand, to bring it to a point where users around the world would care about Momenteo.
And the rest is history.
