***UPDATE (February 2018): We're live and you can sign up directly at www.getpenta.com*** Hi everyone, Penta cofounder here. Bit of a shocker to see us on ProductHunt this morning ๐ŸŽ‰! Luckily I didn't go out last night ๐Ÿ˜ƒ! Thanks @_floriannagel Our goal at Penta is to make business banking really easy and free, just like Slack or Trello! โ˜บ๏ธ We just launched in December and we've grown our waitlist to over 3K businesses in Germany and now we've invited over 50% of that waitlist to join Penta. We're inviting people who have signed up on our waitlist everyday. So if you're signed up, you should expect an invite within a few days. Penta is only available for German businesses ๐Ÿ‡ฉ๐Ÿ‡ช at the moment. The business types that can open a Penta account include: UG, GmbH, AG, GbR, OHG, PartG, KG, e.K. About Penta: 1. You can sign up online in minutesโ€”from your couch. ๐Ÿ›‹ 2. Your business MasterCard should arrive within a few days of ordering it ๐Ÿ’ณ 3. Penta is free to use! ๐Ÿ†“ 4. You can also sign up on the weekend ๐Ÿ˜Ž 5. You will have a German IBAN/BIC and insurance on deposits just like with any other European financial institution. We're also just as safe and secure as any other bank in Germany or Europe as our banking partner solarisBank is a European bank. ๐Ÿฆ In the future, we'll include banking products like FX, cash-flow management and prediction, automated accounting and more products via 3rd parties. More info about us: a)) http://techcrunch.com/2017/12/12... b) https://medium.com/@GetPenta c) http://twitter.com/getpenta Since this was completely unexpected, we'll happily allow anyone from the PH community to jump the waitlist to open Penta account immediately (check below) Thanks guys! Looking forward to your questions. PS, We had some PR around TransferWise stealing our branding this week: http://eu-startups.com/2018/01/b... and https://twitter.com/getpenta/sta... so we are quite unprepared for this PH launch...

When you guys launch in the UK Iโ€™m all over this. It took 6 weeks to open our business bank account last time. Tried 3 banks. All terrible for different reasons, and I still hate who we ended up with. The charges are insane.

@jakeapeters Hi Jake, yes, business banking can really be awful! We also had the problem of opening a business bank account. Turns out, itโ€™s easier to build a bank account than to open a bank account! ๐Ÿ˜„We donโ€™t have a timeline yet of when weโ€™re in the UK unfortunately. Best of luck in the meantime!
