CompleteSet is a company that acts as a world archive for collectibles, founded by Gary Darna and Jaime Rump.

CompleteSet is a company that acts as an archive for collectibles. The company was founded in 2012 by Gary Darna and Jaime Rump, in Cincinnati, Ohio.



The service that CompleteSet provides can be found online or on a mobile app, and helps fans catalog their collection items, then allows them to input information on items, and also helps collectors purchase from other users. The idea that CompleteSet was founded on was to be an interactive guide to collectibles, and is constantly growing its archive to include every collectible ever made. Metadata regarding each collectible is provided, including date, manufacturer, country of origin, and other data.



Users are alerted if an exact match of an item has been posted. The correct type of collectible, brand, year of production, and country of origin have to be met in order for a collector to be notified. When a user joins the site, they inform the service what they are interested in by clicking on an item and mark it as a "have" item or a "want" item. The site has had over one million items collected like this.



CompleteSet is a company that participated in the Velocity Indiana Accelerator 06/01/14 cohort and raised an estimated $2,274,000.
