012005
mantro.net is founded by Markus Ortmann, Benjamin Schüdzig and Manfred Tropper, all students at Technical University of Munich. The company delivers enterprise software development services to large German corporates.
022008
The transformation into mantro.net GmbH and a build-up of 10 employees allowed us to take over first full projects for our clients, including web-based business applications and data warehouse environments.
032010
mantro.net is the smallest yet most agile digital product development partner for large software companies winning multiple international projects like automotive POS development for the worlds largest automotive OEM.
042012
The now 25 people team of mantro.net moves to its new innovation hub in Zielstattstraße Munich. We now focus on delivering a combination of services around digital innovation including ideation and business model design combined with software realization.
052013
As we build up more and more skills in product development we learn that there's nothing like founding own companies. We start by investing our skills into fleetster (http://www.fleetster.de) and by founding absence.io (http://www.absence.io).
062014
The transformation into a digital product development company is pushed further by starting more own ventures and taking over more responsibility in corporate digital transformation activities.
072015
Our first corporate joint venture is started. The old company name mantro.net is replaced with mantro to express the new focus, moving away from providing development services, to being a company and product builder.
082016
The team has grown to more than 50 people working in international product development projects. Our expertise is extended to topics like IoT and AR/VR where we introduce newest tech to products of our own and of our partners.
092017
We sell absence.io and hereby orchestrate our first exit. We found 6 companies in this year and grow our office space to 1500 sqm, planing the next extension to host more innovative joint ventures with our partners.
0102018
A new office in Zagreb opens its doors and over 60 mantrosen with 18 different nationalities work at mantro. We founded another 6 companies. Our business model evolves increasingly towards being a long term joint venture partner, as opposed to simply being a service provider.
