We believe every entrepeneur deserves an edge

Our mission has been our driving force:

Saving business owners time and money, so they can do more of what they love.

Our story.

Until 2012, Stef was managing the sales of his neighborhood bar with pen and paper—not the most effective solution. Seeing those old-fashioned tools, a regular of the bar built Stef a simple point of sale system: a numpad to enter the price of drinks and a button for each VAT tariff, and that was that. Years went by without a peep, and everyone was happy. And then 2020 happened.

With everything in flux, it became clear that independent businesses — the beating hearts of our communities — are vulnerable. The shops, cafes and restaurants we love are increasingly dependent on digital tools in order to survive ever-changing times, but they pay for those tools dearly. This had to be changed, and, starting with that first POS made just for Stef, a team of business owners in industries from hospitality to tech got together to create something new, something that puts the interests of independent business owners front and center, and saves them time and money. The result was Tebi: an all-in-one platform with a cutting edge POS, kitchen display system, integrated payments, instant insights, reservations, QR ordering and more — with new features regularly added at no extra cost.

The Tebi formula.

As a company, we keep to a few enduring principles to guide our vision and strengthen our teamwork.
We create value not for one, but all of our customers.
While it may be tempting to build custom solutions for that one big fish, our goal is to create value for all business owners out there.
We seek to positively impact communities and planet.
We’re guided by constantly asking ourselves if we are a positive presence for the people and environment that surround us.
We launch fast and iterate.
We want to get our tools in the hands of business owners as fast as we can, and learn from them on the go.
We sharpen our ideas together.
It’s not about getting our own idea to win out, but to make it the best idea it can possibly be by inviting others to help improve it.
We innovate by questioning conventions.
There’s no reason to assume the status quo still makes sense: we embrace change and engage with our customers to find the best solutions to today’s problems.
We discuss sensitive issues in real time, not in writing.
In short: we pick up the phone. If you want more information about this principle, please call us.
