Trulioo wins Emerging Company of the Year

"Trulioo is thrilled to play a key role in helping businesses navigate ever-changing financial regulation and compliance hurdles, while continuing to move forward and grow as a company."

Trulioo, the leading global identity verification company, today announced it has been named Emerging Company of the Year at the Technology Impact Awards (TIA) sponsored by BC Tech Association.

The longest running and largest technology awards in the province, the TIAs celebrate the best of BC’s tech industry. Companies are honored in 10 categories, divided among three distinct groups – technology, people and company, which recognize outstanding technology, companies and individuals.

In their 24th year, the awards were presented last night at a gala held at the Vancouver Convention Centre in front of more than 1,000 technology leaders, innovators and industry supporters.

“We are truly honored to receive this award,” said Zac Cohen, GM of Trulioo. “It’s an exciting time for Canadian fintech, as a sector we’re experiencing exponential growth, and Trulioo is thrilled to play a key role in helping businesses navigate ever-changing financial regulation and compliance hurdles, while continuing to move forward and grow as a company.”

Trulioo’s real-time identity verification platform, GlobalGateway, provides secure access to more than 200 unique global data sources, from over 60 countries, to instantly verify more than 4 billion consumers. Special focus is targeted at emerging markets, where people have little to no access to the traditional banking system. By comparing registration information against information that has been collected and hosted by trusted data sources, GlobalGateway offers transparent identity verification, in real-time, through a single integration.

The gala gathered together a multitude of sectors, including fintech, software, cleantech and health and medical technology.
A sold-out event, the gala was hosted by BC Tech – an association dedicated to developing and advocating on behalf of the technology industry.
