SAN FRANCISCO (PRWEB) September 01, 2020
CB Insights today named Trulioo, the leading global identity verification company, to the third annual Fintech 250, a list of emerging private companies working on groundbreaking financial technology.
“We're proud to, once again, recognize the 250 best private fintech companies globally. This year's Fintech 250 represents 25 countries and spans 19 categories -- reimagining everything from retail banking and crypto, to insurance and asset management,” said CB Insights CEO Anand Sanwal. “The previous Fintech 250 class raised more than $22 billion in investor financing and saw more than 20 exits after being recognized, and we expect this year's class will have similar success as they continue to transform how people and businesses spend, save, borrow, and invest their money.”
Through an evidence-based approach, the CB Insights Intelligence Unit selected the Fintech 250 from a pool of 16,000 companies, including applicants and nominees, based on several factors. These factors include patent activity, investor quality, news sentiment analysis, proprietary Mosaic scores, market potential, partnerships, competitive landscape, team strength, and tech novelty. The Mosaic Score, based on CB Insights’ algorithm, measures the overall health and growth potential of private companies to help predict a company’s momentum.
“We are truly honored to be included in CB Insights’ Fintech 250 roster for a second year alongside some of the most transformative and prestigious fintech companies in the world,” said Steve Munford, CEO of Trulioo. “Now more than ever, we need to ensure that the most vulnerable people in societies all over the world have access to basic financial and healthcare services. We believe that digital identity is critical to achieving full financial inclusion and building trust in the digital economy.”
Since the company’s founding in 2011, Trulioo has received more than US$ 70 million in investments, enabling the company to develop a first-class identity verification solution to help companies around the globe, ranging from large financial institutions to innovative tech companies.
