Our Mission

At Collekt, our mission is to create a world where collecting art is fun, easy, and hassle-free. All relevant details, images, and notes on every item in your collection should be right there at your fingertips, able to be accessed from anywhere in the world. Far too often, an art collection is passed down through generations with no associated information: no provenance, no estimated value, no details whatsoever. We want to end those days and finally bring art collecting into the future, making sure the beautiful personal details of art are never lost or forgotten.

What Do We Do?

To accomplish our mission, we have developed an app that allows you to securely and privately index, organize, and grow your collection – all in one place. The app is designed to be simple, sleek and powerful, allowing users to record any and all relevant details such as artist, literature, provenance and value. The app is free to use up to 5 items, so download it now on the app store and let us know what you think!
