Meet the CEO.

Benny Bennet Jürgens is CEO and founder of Nect GmbH. The trained computer scientist started his career in the insurance industry and worked on various digitisation projects. Before founding his own company, the 34-year-old was responsible for the app development of a globally operating insurance group.

The knowledge gained in more than a decade laid the foundation for a focused start-up. Jürgens used his extensive knowledge and experience in the planning, management and implementation of large-scale IT projects to identify and successfully overcome the fundamental challenges of remote identification without personal contact in the insurance industry: high abort rates, enormous costs and quality deficiencies. This is how the idea and the still valid claim to create a secure and at the same time easy to integrate alternative for all customers and users were born.

We are shaping the digital identity of tomorrow

About Nect.

Nect GmbH is an award-winning IT company based in Hamburg. Founded in 2017 by Benny Bennet Jürgens and Carlo Ulbrich, Nect stands for the development and implementation of sophisticated, secure and at the same time maximally user-friendly identification solutions for digital applications on the Internet. The Robo-Ident technology, an AI-based online identification developed and patent-pending by Nect, was first implemented at R+V Versicherung in 2018. Today, the constantly growing customer base includes other well-known companies, such as Nürnberger Versicherung, Hamburgische Investitions- und Förderbank (IFB) and the Bundesagentur für Arbeit.

Data security and data protection are the key focus of all Nect solutions. This is ensured both by the complete in-house development of the software components as well as the use of ISO-certified data centres with the highest security level and the abandonment of cloud solutions.

Today, about 60 million people in Germany have access to Nect technology through the Nect customer base. Integrable into the processes of companies in numerous industries within a few days, more than 20,000 users per day have already been legitimised without waiting time. With 4.9 and 4.8 out of 5.0 stars in the App Store and Google Play Store, the Nect app is also the best-rated app in its category thanks to its simple user guidance.

In addition to the Nect Selfie-Ident, the key product of Nect, the portfolio includes other self-service products such as the Ticket-Ident for securing online and offline events, eSignature and multi-factor authentication. For its innovative and future-oriented solutions, Nect has been awarded the Hamburger Gründerpreis and the German Excellence Prize twice, among others.
