Artory was founded in 2016 by Nanne Dekking, an eloquent advocate for change in the international art market, with the endorsement and support of Hasso Plattner, the founder of SAP and an internationally-renowned art collector, and Ron and Jeff Cordover of the Corber Corp private equity firm and art-collecting family.
They all saw the challenges facing the art market—with two-thirds of collectors worried about buying fakes, the lack of trust in the art market is self-evident. They realized that their combined art world expertise and technical resources could lead to something truly special—and Artory was born.
Artory’s mission is to protect and grow the prosperity and enjoyment of those who buy, own, and sell art. Our teams in New York and Berlin have built the core product—the Artory Registry—and through innovative technological solutions, as a neutral and trusted resource, Artory is bringing a new level of confidence to the market.
