TAXMOBIL is a revolutionary mobility concept that connects all areas of mobility, uses pre-existing vehicles, and offers its users a never before seen cost/performance ratio with easy access and practical use.

Bert Neckermann grows up in the Swabian Alb, near Reutlingen in Baden-Württemberg. Raised to think independently and to have a sense of entrepreneurial chances, he develops a growing talent for persuasiveness in his youth.
Bert breaks with the system and sets out into the world. The choice to leave school – training in hotel gastronomy & world trip follows. As a barkeeper, he travels throughout the southern hemisphere.
The passenger transport industry becomes his livelihood as much as a new challenge for Bert. A decision with far-reaching consequences for his future life and career.
Bert founds his own MiniCar company in Böblingen, trains himself in IT and programming and, over years, analyzes the problematic construct of mobility. This marks the beginning of the development of a new mobility concept, which will much later turn into the project Taxmobil.
Bert enters the tourist industry. Founding of a travel agency and tour organization with a focus on Italy and Turkey. Exit through sale of the company.
Bert becomes a lecturer and consultant in the fields of taxi, rental car, and business start-up at the IHK, in the newly-formed German states.
Bert starts giving training and consultations, for individuals as well as companies. In analogy to NMC, the Neckermann Management College AG of his father, his business becomes known as LBC – Life & Business College Bert Neckermann.
The „new mobility concept is starting to take shape. Transfer of his MiniCar Böblingen company to the family. However, Bert retains his positions as shareholder, controller, and consultant.
Bert branches out his activities with an exclusive distribution business for construction components and industrial doors in the newly-formed German states. Founding of Runtec GbR. Exit through sale of the company.
Bert enters the production cosmos. Starting as sales manager and acting as leading manager of SEKONA Federn in Trochtelfingen, Bert leads the company through many roadblocks onto the most profitable markets for steel springs. But mobility will not let him go so he returns to his main sphere of activity.
After years of planning the time has finally come: The new mobility concept becomes a company. With the founding of Taxmobil GmbH Germany, the project for more effective, affordable mobility has officially started. Over the following years, Bert devotes himself to development and concepting, the start of funding, needs assessments, media presence, and, starting in 2007, the cooperation with renowned institutes, and software development.
Transfer to Switzerland. Founding of Taxmobil stock coperation in Switzerland, to press ahead with Taxmobil from there and to realize the concept for the German-speaking market.
The Taxmobil Kickoff Event, last round of funding before the start, marks the beginning of strong interventions against the mobility concept. Shitstorms and numerous attempts to prevent the project are setting in.
Fresh attempt for the Taxmobil launch in Frankfurt a.M., in cooperation with the taxi union. Due to repeated negative interference from press, partners, and staff, the project comes to a stop once more.
Regardless of previous foiled starts, the shareholders place their trust in Bert Neckermann. After the publication of the general assembly results, a third party files a petition in bankruptcy against the Taxmobil AG. Bert faces the fight against the litigation and works towards averting bankruptcy and starting anew from this point forward.
Bert wins the fight against the Taxmobil petition in bankruptcy. As one of only three cases in the Swiss history of law, the litigation is disposed of in its entirety, and Bert Neckermann thereby exonerated. Except time, his investors lose nothing.
After the litigation has been disposed of, new projects are developed based on the remaining options. Using the original Taxmobil technology, the system for the personal security concept NOTI Panic Button is developed. The Taxmobil Support Center is created in Turkey, an emergency call company bought, and NEKON A.S. founded, which has since then transformed into the operational center for the entire Bert Neckermann Group (bn-group).
NOTI’s development in India leads to contact with Arthur’s Food Company (AFC), the sausage factory of an old friend and former co-developer of the Taxmobil technology. His friend’s upcoming expansion leads to a partnership with Bert – and the project AFC becomes a temporary priority.
Arthur’s Food Company remains the main focus, meanwhile, Bert’s media image is being reconceptualized, and the development of a new organization with its core focus in Istanbul begins. Several new concepts and business propositions are examined and prepared conceptually.
Bert plans a concentration of his activities in Istanbul, as an operational center. For Arthur’s Food Company, the new production- and sales Joint Venture AFC – Dr. Oetker in India is just getting started, the NOTI completion and beginning of distribution is nearing, whereas Taxmobil is being reconceptualized as well, and actively searching for reliable and professional partners. Additionally, the preparation for a senior-living concept for European retirees in Turkey will begin. For this, Bert is focusing on professionalizing and expanding the funding part.
