    Who we are

    At Tallysticks, we believe that international trade brings the global community together. We feel that trading has become complicated, time-consuming and lacking in trust between parties. It is no longer as simple as it used to be... so we decided to create a better way to trade.

    Our aim is to help independent businesses around the world - the backbone of the globe’s economy - to grow.

    To help our customers, we’re using software automation and existing banking products to help build trust between trading partners and foster confidence in their trade potential. We’ve simplified the end-to-end trade process by creating a single online tool for documentation, communications and payments. Tallysticks reduces the effort, cost and risk of trade management for independent businesses.

    Tallysticks is a Fintech 100 Europe company, a Barclays Techstars Accelerator as well as EY StartUp Challenge graduate. It is a finalist for the BBVA Open Talent and NTT Open Innovation competitions as well as a Simons & Simons FinTech Fund winner.
