Now, let’s see what Marc thinks about our 10 #HighFive questions.

My superpower is… making people enthusiastic about a great journey.

One of my productivity hacks is… being truly passionate about every project I start.

If I am not an entrepreneur, I will be… searching for ways to be one… moving things forward is in my DNA.

For me success is… using disruptive technology in order to automate processes.

I dream of… making a positive impact with all my endeavours.


The problem which eCollect is tackling is… breaking silos and reducing complexity in the receivables management.

The UVP (Unique Value Proposition) of our product is… creating an end-to-end receivables management platform. Our technology is what makes us Europe’s leading FinTech platform for debt collection.

The hardest part about building a startup is… learning how to navigate through chaos and get people on board with a vision that inspires and motivates them.

I learned the hard way that… sometimes you need to take a step back in order to move forward. Taking time to reflect is key for building success in life.

We believe in our success, because…we are a unique piece of software combined with the strength of industry experienced people.
