EVERY PROBLEM HAS A SOLUTION.

OUR TAKE ON THINGS.

Our world is becoming cashless.

Our relationship with money is evolving as consumers.

Our passion as entrepreneurs is driven by this trend and its socio-economic impact.

Our vision reflects the effects of digital money on the evolution of new ecosystems set in motion by financial technology companies.

Our uniqueness celebrates a dependency on digital payment solutions that restore transactional trust and alleviate disclosure of personal data.

Our brand has purpose. Gratuu provides a solution that matters to people in a new normal digital economy.

OUR MISSION.

THE PROBLEM: Employees lose earnings resulting from cashless society trends preventing conventional gratuities. Customers inadequately compensate employees caused by the inability to tip without instant access to cash.

THE SOLUTION: A mobile app that offers gratuities in a digital economy for a cashless customer faced with tipping. Financial data and personal information remains secure and anonymous, with tips debited and credited directly to bank accounts.

OUR GAME-CHANGERS.
