A Bootstrapped Success Story

The global rise of a self-made Family Business

With sparkling ideas at the right time and smart decisions, to entrepreneurial heights

The brothers Roland and Gerald Tauchner have practically built from scratch and on their own an internationally successful group of companies over the past 25 years, generating nine-digit revenues.

From bold pioneers to confident navigators in the dynamic technology landscape.
Already in the early 2000s, the entrepreneurial duo made a name for themselves with visionary ideas and a first-mover mentality in the area of SMS and mobile payment. In the following years, the brothers continuously developed their group of companies through foresighted decisions in line with technological progress, and navigated it confidently through the stormy times of technological change. And they have done so successfully – and exclusively family-owned – to this day.

“We are a family business! And that is also the spirit within our companies. We are proud that some employees have been active in our holdings for decades. Trust in technology and above all: trust in people – that is our greatest success.”

Roland Tauchner

Experienced serial entrepreneurs at the forefront of time

There is no end in sight to their success story. Roland and Gerald Tauchner remain committed to actively shaping the future with new innovations. With their majority stake in DINAPE Solutions GmbH, they have taken the next bold step in building a technology for the faster development and easier operation of highly complex software systems. Their goal is to assist companies in swiftly implementing digital ideas with cutting-edge technology, enabling them to grow successfully and stay ahead of the curve.

Therefore, the signs point to “to be continued”, and it remains exciting to see what other successes the future holds.


Brothers. Business partners. Serial founders.
The Perfect Match: With perseverance and innovative spirit to success.
