Experience in new business creation

We learned the hard way what it takes to create winning digital businesses. This includes burning cash and killing companies that didn't work. From strategy and staffing to execution and scaling - we are experienced in crafting effective strategies, staffing high-velocity and cross-functional teams, and help them deliver their best work.

Candid collaboration

We work unconventionally. We challenge assumptions, conventions, and make decisions that are sometimes painful. That’s why our clients receive complete transparency of our iterative journey from day one to delivery.

High-velocity projects through autonomous, cross-functional, and compact teams

Manfred Tropper, CEO mantro

"We are not here to boost billable hours through endless consulting. We want to create. That is why we tell you what you need to hear to make the right calls. We don't engage in wishful thinking but dare to kill if things are not working, even if it hurts. That’s what sets us apart."

Why work with us

We nurture Erfindergeist

We turn projects into product teams, where everyone identifies with the product. Teams are small, have an interdisciplinary skill range, and collaborate fast and goal-oriented like a founders team.

We are entrepreneurs

Everyone, really everyone at mantro has experienced entrepreneurship in the past and works 100% entrepreneurial. We aim to create products and services that make money.

We are brutally honest

Killing an unsuccessful product might be painful but keeping it alive on false premises is far more painful. We are brutally honest to avoid burning cash.

We build sustainable technologies

We map out your organization’s capabilities and architectures and integrate products, services, and systems that work seamlessly.

We are 100% self-owned

We are 100% founder-owned and form a long-lasting partnership with you, from the beginning until the product is successfully established in the market
