Financial know-how from the Otto Group as an asset

collectAI was developed in 2016. The idea was based on the fact that 23 percent of invoices in Europe are overdue, mostly because they have been forgotten or never reached their recipients. Thanks to the existing assets within the Otto Group, the collectAI team soon delivered a proof of concept. Invoices and reminders from online retailers were the starting point for the development of AI-based technology.

Today, the team comprises 50 tech and business professionals led by Sebastian Hoop and Thomas von Hake. The company is based in Hamburg's HafenCity district. collectAI regularly organizes the community event for AI enthusiasts: HamburgAI.
