About tagtu

Our story

Tagtu was founded in 2021 by Michael Friedrich and Maxim Kahlert in Berlin. The initial idea was born more than 15 years ago and took shape over the years.

The more we spoke with business travellers and organizations recognizing the need for more efficient and sustainable travel, the more it became clear that building this platform needed to happen. And it’s coming soon!


Great teams build great things.

We've know and worked with each other for years - now is the time to build the next generation business travel platform.

Our values

People centricity

Behind every process is a human being. Intrinsic motivation is the best driver to foster greater engagement & improved growth.


Be respectful, truthful and confident but never arrogant. Everybody is important. This is key to creating a culture of innovation.


We like to laugh and don't take ourselves too seriously.
