Fully-Verified, a Startup Wise Guys backed company, offers a range of video-based identity verification services aimed at delivering the highest level of security and compliance. It has now secured a new financing round, for an undisclosed amount, led by POMERANGELS investment fund, Krystian Stypuła (founder of Home.pl, J-Cash Holdings), and Samuli Koski-Lammi (founder of BLStream/Intive, Qvistorp, Lavinium Holdings). The goal for this round is to strengthen the company’s position within the global market of identity verification and KYC services, as well as expand to new, emerging markets.
Services of Fully-Verified range from full video identifications – where a user connects with a verification specialist via a video call, to automated identity verifications on video, where a user can go through the whole procedure on their own.
Fully-Verified’s identity verifications are backed by automated document recognition and validation technology which supports over 7700 documents from over 200 countries, face recognition, machine learning, AI, sanction / pep checks, as well as trained verification specialists. Thanks to doing everything on a live video stream, customers can enjoy full transparency of the process, where the whole procedure is recorded on video and all the details automatically sent via API.
