A Closer Look at LHoFT Member Tetrao

What is Tetrao?

Tetrao is a technology startup company specialised in internet intelligent process automation. It is built around technology that simulates the human behavior to collect, read and understand information from web sites or PDF documents. It is utterly reliable, adaptable and very useful for finance. It belongs to the broader sphere of Robotic Cognitive Automation.

A Luxembourg Success Story

Participating in the BootstrapLabs summer BootCamp is a logical continuation of Tetrao’s path to success. Back in december Tetrao scored first place at the largest international Fintech hackathon hosted by BGL BNP Paribas. After winning the regional heats in Luxembourg during the summer, the team’s solution came out ahead of competitors representing the best from nine other cities (San Francisco, Rome, Paris, Brussels, Berlin, Warsaw, Nanjing, Istanbul, Singapore) at the finals in Paris.

It is always exciting to witness Luxembourg Fintech achieving great success on an international scale, and Tetrao is no exception. Artificial Intelligence technology has the capacity to dramatically reduce the effort involved from customers and financial service providers in the process of accessing products.


Gillot also proposed that the great challenge that lies ahead for Europe is to conciliate regulation and customer protection with technological innovation and progress. There is a real possibility of losing business to financial centers that are out of the European Union. Fortunately, Artificial Intelligence can mitigate the cost and energy necessary to implement regulation.


“We will see Artificial Intelligence startups enabling scenarios that people in the financial industry thought would never be possible.” – Christian Gillot, CEO of Tetrao, on AI in 2018


Spurred by their recent success, Christian Gillot and the Tetrao team will continue their US journey after the BootCamp by onboarding their first US client – one of the largest banks in the country. Stay tuned for more insights….

As with all of our members, Tetrao adds huge value to the LHoFT ecosystem by contributing unique technical knowledge and perspective. Their success in driving artificially intelligent change in the financial world will hopefully help many other startups find their way. Thank you to Christian and the Tetrao team for being a part of LHoFT’s growth!


Big milestone today: @Tetrao_eu has just moved in new and great @The_LHoFT, we are so excited!
