Compado helps high-profile consumer brands, such as, Hello Fresh, Parship and Babbel, to achieve outstanding growth by sending tens of thousands of users, who are ready to buy.


In recent years, Compado has become a market leader in commercial decision products, with a strong foothold in the European and American markets. Being a heavy-weight influencer of consumer journeys, Compado relies on its titanium-grade capabilities in building comparison and decision-making platforms, presenting users with one or several handpicked brands from the Compado network.


At the heart of Compado’s success story are our Vertical Leads: On a fast track to becoming start-up scene legends, our Vertical Leads assemble multi-functional go-to-market task forces to conquer industries. Owning one or several markets, our Vertical Leads help to introduce Compado’s commercial decision products to every corner of the world.

A few more facts about our work culture: We believe in leading, not following. That’s why we decided that carbon neutral is not good enough. We are carbon positive, and will not compromise on environmental standards. We have also decided that traditional working is over. We went fully remote and are spearheading the Remote Working movement within Berlin’s Start-up scene. With us, you can work from anywhere.
