Kontist by Ageras


Foundation of Kontist

Kontist is a Berlin-based FinTech company founded in 2016 that specializes in making life easier for solo self-employed and freelancers when it comes to banking, bookkeeping and taxes.

The founder Christopher Plantener worked as a freelancer himself for many years and was unable to persuade any bank to offer special services for the self-employed. He therefore decided without further hesitation to offer a solution himself in collaboration with Solaris.

With success: the concept of an app that makes it easy to manage banking transactions, bookkeeping and taxes attracted international investors. The last financing round in March 2021 raised 25 million euros. From the end of 2020 to mid-2022, Christopher Plantener shared the management of Kontist with Benjamin Esser.

Acquisition by Ageras

Kontist has been part of Ageras since mid-2022. Associated with other companies such as Tellow, Billy, Salary and Zervant. Together, Ageras strives to change the way small businesses and freelancers succeed in the fast-paced business world.
