In 2010 he moved to İstanbul from San Francisco in order to work for Endeavor which supports the growth and development of startups as a non-governmental organization. At this period, he experienced difficulties while managing the financial transactions of small and medium-sized companies and decided to provide a solution that would facilitate the management of the pre-accounting processes such as billing, revenue-expense tracking.
