About Us

Collaborata is the first global platform to connect research clients and suppliers to shape and launch transformative insights projects.

We bring cost-sharing to the insights industry, reducing redundancy to drive down costs.

Our two co-founders have a combined 35 years in the marketing-research industry and at one of Chicago’s most successful tech startups. Collaborata’s team, in addition to marketers, developers and designers, boasts key advisors from both the insights and tech industries, fortified by key strategic partnerships covering both sides.

We believe our industry is ready for a collaborative, cost-sharing marketplace. We hope you agree.
