The inception of Billdu traces back to 2012 when our CEO, Erik, an accomplished freelance graphic designer, encountered a significant hurdle. While attempting to generate an invoice for a client, he realized the absence of a reliable mobile solution for creating and modifying invoices. This prompted the birth of our company under the name "miniRechnung."
After achieving considerable success in the European market, we made the strategic decision to expand our operations globally. Presently, a significant proportion of our user base hails from prominent countries such as the United States, Australia and United Kingdom.
One of our most significant achievements. After five years of hard work, we finally reached 100,000 registered users in the Billdu application.
It took us almost five years to reach our first 100,000 app users. However, in just one year, we successfully doubled our user base to an impressive 200,000. This rapid expansion is a testament to our commitment for delivering an exceptional user experience.
Billdu was chosen as one of the top 5 applications for small businesses to be showcased on Apple's App Store. We were promoted along with apps like Asana, Microsoft Teams, Fiverr, and Airtable across many countries all around the world. Later we managed to replicate this success again both in 2021 and 2022.
Building upon our success in the field of invoicing, we have embarked on an exciting journey to further enhance Billdu's capabilities, bringing us one step closer to realizing our vision of simplifying the lives of small business owners. With the introduction of innovative features, we are pleased to offer you the convenience of effortlessly creating online bookings and olnine stores within the Billdu platform.
For a considerable duration, Billdu operated under various names across different countries, such as "miniFaktura" and "miniRechnung." However, in 2021, we made a strategic decision to streamline our communications, enhance our logo, unify our brand identity, and launch our inaugural brand campaign. The outcome is the remarkable transformation you witness before you.
In 2021, we grew past 2M USD ARR. In 2022, we plan on taking this success and pushing it further to 3M USD ARR.
