We believe in the power of 1

2021 saw the birth of 4 million new solo businesses in Europe. The economic footprint of European solo business currently stands at €2 trillion euros — that's equal to the GDP of India!

Despite the solo's growing might within the global economy, we think it's a lot harder to operate as an independent than it should be.

Operating a solo business is significantly less efficient compared to larger companies with the resources to scale these processes. Solos lose 2 working days a month to the necessary evils of operating a solo business: preparing contracts and invoices, chasing down payments, filing expense reports, paying taxes and making sure you're on the right side of the government's compliance rules.

Solos pay more taxes and shoulder more risk compared to larger SMBs and corporations. And while governments are happy to pocket your tax money, they choose not to spend it on updating their obsolete business infrastructure or working toward making their corporate tax regimes more fair and proportional.

Operating as an independent can feel like the cards are stacked against you. Xolo is here to change that.

To make solopreneurship a magical experience…

Specifically because, as previously established, operating as an independent is the opposite of magical.

We can't promise your solo business will be successful. That's on you. But we can promise that with Xolo, you will spend 10X less time on business admin. We can promise you won't have to lie awake at night worrying if you filed your tax documents correctly. We promise to make sure you play by the government's rules, while remaining unapologetically biased toward your company's best interests. Because just because you're a solo doesn't mean you're alone.

With Xolo, you'll be able to save time and earn more money by spending your operating hours focused on the clients you like and the work you love, and growing your business to heights you never thought possible. Pretty magical, right?

Our origin story isn't so different from other companies: a group of friends with compatible skills had a great idea and followed through.

What's unique is that our story takes place in the digitally-savvy, pro-business nation of Estonia, where you can do everything from launch a business to file your taxes completely online, in minutes. Our founders set out to lower the barriers of entry to solopreneurship and make it just as easy for the rest of the world to go solo as it is here in Estonia.

We've come a long way since we first launched in 2015, and we have no intention of slowing down anytime soon:

Our values

Clockwork

Even if you had all kinds of extra time and brainspace — would you really want to spend it on remembering when you need to register as an autonomo in Spain or what the VAT rate in Belgium is or which annual report is due at the end of the month?

Yeah, we didn't think so.

As the guardians of the livelihoods of so many honest, hard-working solos, we take our jobs incredibly seriously. We hire experts, we do our homework and we work hard every day to build solutions that work with such precision that you barely have to think about them at all.

Big-Hearted

We think it's one of the most badass things you can do in your career life, to look the promise of a steady paycheck dead in the eye and say, "No thanks, I'll bet on myself."

But we also know that being an independent can mean feeling undervalued, misunderstood, even invisible — the forever outsider and underdog. We provide software as a service, but we're also here to listen, to help out in any way we can, to put your mind at ease, to treat you like a human being. We think it deserves to be repeated: just because you're solo doesn't mean you're alone.

Maverick

Maverick can be a difficult concept to claim as a corporate value in 2022. In popular culture, the term comes with baggage (nationalism, toxic masculinity) — and conjures images of some outlaw from the old west who shoots first, asks questions later.

And let's be honest, it's obnoxious to call yourself a maverick.

But this value is more about aspiring to be mavericks than claiming it for ourselves. It's to publicly hold ourselves accountable when it comes to choosing to do what's right over what's easy.

We believe that in the not-so-distant future, operating as an independent will be a social norm and a human right. Business will become a birthright in that every new baby that's born will receive a business entity that they can decide to use (or not) — at any point during their time on this planet. Opening a business will take no more than a few minutes. Bureaucracy will be streamlined through digital automation. Taxation will be fair and proportional.
