About Gekko

The idea for Gekko was hatched in 2012. Joris and Tijs found the online accounting options for freelancers severely lacking. Lots of unconnected apps, boring tasks and forms costing freelancers valuable time they would rather spend on their actual work.

So in 2013 they started Gekko: the easiest way to keep track of your finances online. The team was quickly expanded with Vlad and Chema and the current team consist of six people working on new services and features that aim to simplify how freelancers do business.
