Our excitement lies in their unique and effective approach to applying consumer identification in the analysis of e-commerce transactions to prevent and uncover fraud, regulatory violations, and money laundering.

IdentityMind Global, a provider of risk management solutions for e-commerce, has partnered with SBT Venture Capital to fast-track expansion in the European market. SBT Venture Capital, which focuses exclusively on growing promising FinTech companies, has a history of assisting early-stage organizations in the e-commerce and risk management space, with past successes including NetGuardians and Walkbase.

The partnership is timely as the FinTech market continues to grow at a tremendous pace, with global investment demonstrating a CAGR of 31%. Risk management solutions in particular have been bolstered by the wider adoption and enforcement of regulations intended to detect and prevent criminal use of financial systems, including fraud, money-laundering activity, and funding of terrorist and criminal organizations.

“Since 2008, global investment in FinTech ventures has tripled to nearly $3 billion. The dramatic changes underway in financial services, driven by new digital technology, regulations, consumer behavior and the need to reduce costs, mean this trend is set to continue, with global investment on track to grow to up to $8 billion by 2018." - Accenture, The Rise of FinTech, © June 2014

“We sustain the extensive adoption of the IdentityMind Global platform in Europe and beyond,” says Mircea Mihaescu, Managing Partner at SBT Venture Capital. “Our excitement lies in their unique and effective approach to applying consumer identification in the analysis of e-commerce transactions to prevent and uncover fraud, regulatory violations, and money laundering. IdentityMind is in an optimal position to address these challenges using their innovative Electronic DNA (eDNA™) technology.”

“We have made commitments to our largest clients to support their international operations, and will leverage the investment and strength of SBT Venture Capital to execute on these commitments by reaching further into Europe.” Said Garrett Gafke, CEO and President of IdentityMind Global. “SBT Venture Capital is a key player in the FinTech investment community, and we trust them to help us grow and become self-sustainable at a very fast pace.”

IdentityMind’s Risk Management Platform currently supports customers worldwide, with an identity database covering all continents. IdentityMind Global complies with all EU privacy laws and is Safe Harbor certified.
