We're here to shape a human-centric future of work.

And the future starts now.

Why we started Collato

Co-founders Ivo & Sebastian met back in 2010 at Zalando, and quickly realized: organizations are only as good as their people. Sebastian and Ivo became passionate about creating working environments which would enable their teams to thrive. However, they both felt that the technology teams used to accomplish their goals was often holding them back.

Hence the idea for Collato was born. The fastest, easiest, and most effective way to share knowledge and ideas within your team. Breaking down barriers not only between different departments within organizations, but also between the tools they were using.

Our mission

Collato was founded in 2020 with a mission to make the future of work more human-centric. Our software flexibly supports individual workflows, makes needed information easily accessible to everyone, and nudges positive work habits.

We believe that collaboration is key to unlocking the potential of people and businesses, but it can be unnecessarily difficult. So, we’re on a mission to make it effortless. Collato connects daily work to your company’s purpose, saving time and allowing people to create an impact without burning out.
