“Identity verification at the speed of life.”
Voted this year’s top Fintech, Onfido’s technology enables companies to carry out remote, reliable identity verification. For developers, its innovation lies in being able to quickly integrate these services with apps or websites, allowing developers to easily add identity verification. Headquartered in London, Onfido now has offices in San Francisco, New York, Lisbon, Paris, Delhi and Singapore. Founded in 2012, Onfido has received over $110m in funding from investors including Microsoft Ventures, Salesforce Ventures and Idinvest Partners. Onfido carries out verifications in 192 countries for global customers including Revolut, Bitstamp and Zipcar.
In July 2019, Onfido announced a partnership with LendInvest, the UK’s largest marketplace platform for mortgages, to further streamline LendInvest’s digital application process for its Buy-to-Let (BTL) product. In August, Onfido partnered with global remittance company TransferGo to help accelerate their growth. Onfido’s machine learning-based identity verification technology will allow TransferGo to rapidly and securely onboard new users as it continues its global expansion.
