About us.

Collect’d was founded in 2018 by serial technology entrepreneurs Adam Kanner and Carl Trudel with the core belief that individuals should be the center of the digital revolution. And that means controlling your personal information.

For 125 years our personal information has been managed in much the same way – by us, with files and folders, whether online or off. But what once was just papers has now exploded into an unmanageable collection of digital files, apps and more. Whether Dropbox, email folders, computer hard drives, digital vaults or simple file cabinets, the burden has remained on each of us to personally manage, update, and stay on top of our personal data.

Collect’d simplifies and automates that effort. In 2022, after 4 years of development, Collect’d was issued two US Patents (#11,494,664 & #11,720,803) for the use of advanced technology like AI to automatically organize information into contextual categories, making it easier for individuals to organize, access and privately share information. The result is that you are your own information hub. Collect’d keeps you firmly in control of your private information, reduces life’s headaches, and keeps you better prepared for unforeseen emergencies and events.

In January of 2023, Collect’d went live on the Apple App Store.

Collect’d is privately funded by individual investors spanning the world of data privacy, fintech and consumer technology as well as the Sixers Innovation Lab and Luma Launch.
