The Inventor of the Internet Live Auction

Auctionata’s mission is to make the art, antiques and collectibles market more transparent, accessible and available. In our virtual auction room, you’ll find everything you’d expect from a real auction: A clear view of the auctioneer and the objects on auction, real-time information on the bidding activities and the opportunity to place your own bid. The Berlin-based start-up also has a curated online shop with high quality objects at fixed prices. With its full service of a traditional auction house, it reaches millions of users. Auctionata was founded in 2012 by Alexander Zacke and Georg Untersalmberger. Alexander´s vision of bringing an art and auction house to the online world turned into reality when he met Georg, the counterpart capable of developing the necessary technology. Today, Auctionata has several international offices and the expansion continues with a new office in Hong Kong and a full- service location in New York.
