Series A funding for Memtime (formerly known as timeBro)

timeBro raises millions in Series A and renames to memtime

The Munich-based Software-as-a-Service (SaaS) startup memtime, specialized in automatic time tracking software (formerly known as timeBro), has successfully closed a seven-figure funding round. The Series-A round is led by BayBG as the lead investor, with Bayern Kapital as a co-investor. Additionally, Gateway Ventures and business angels Dr. Heinz Raufer (early investor in Flixbus) and Stephan Berendsen from the group of existing investors have also participated.

Press Release, Munich, September 7, 2023 - memtime (formerly timeBro) was founded in 2015 at the renowned Strascheg Center for Entrepreneurship at the University of Munich by Arne Reimann, Mislav Boras, Niclas Preisner, and Dr. Klaus Preisner. The team has been revolutionizing the way service providers track their project times ever since. The company's Activity Tracking Software allows for the automatic recording of all work activities in programs, documents, emails, calendars, and websites. Users get a comprehensive visualization of their workday. "At the end of a long day, no one working on multiple projects can remember how many hours were spent on each project," says Arne Reimann, founder and CEO of memtime. "memtime enables our customers to effortlessly remember every minute of their time and save 75% of their time spent on time tracking."

The significant advantage of the tracking software is its focus on data privacy and security. As an offline tool, memtime stores all data exclusively on the users' devices. Furthermore, the software solution stands out for its integration capabilities: memtime can seamlessly integrate into various project management tools, ERP systems, and billing solutions with open interfaces. Currently, users from over 90 countries are utilizing the SaaS solution. The customer base includes advertising agencies, consulting firms, IT teams, accountants, and law firms - a positioning that is expected to be further expanded through the investments from BayBG and Bayern Kapital.

In the era of efficiency improvement through artificial intelligence, every company in the future must better understand how our human intelligence and time are being used. The fresh capital and our combined expertise will allow us to significantly further develop the software. At the same time, we want to strengthen our market position by introducing our technology into new target markets and driving customer acquisition."
