The history of Yokoy

Yokoy’s story

Experiencing the pain of manually preparing, tracking, checking, approving and processing expenses first-hand, the five co-founders
Dr. Devis Lussi, Lars Mangelsdorf, Melanie Gabriel, Philippe Sahli and Thomas Inhelder, set out to start an expense revolution. 


Yokoy Group AG was founded as Expense Robot GmbH in March 2019. After the successful prototyping- and testing phase of the initial cloud-based expense management service, Yokoy (which was known as Expense Robot at the time) went live with a first wave of customers in September 2019. With the launch of the Yokoy Business Mastercard, the name of the company and the product was changed to Yokoy.

Strategic and powerful investors

SIX and Swisscom Ventures

In March 2020, Yokoy (then known as Expense Robot) announced a Series Seed round of 1.7 million Swiss Francs, led by SIX Group and Swisscom Ventures.
