Finovate Alums Prepare for Citi Tech for Integrity Challenge Finals

For the the next month or so, we’re calling a bunch of Finovate alums the “Awesome Eight”. Citi revealed the finalists for its Tech for Integrity Challenge (T41) Demo Days competition last week. And out of the more than 1,000 entries, eight of the 103 finalists are alumni of Finovate and/or FinDEVr conferences.

Speaking at the launch of the Tech for Integrity Challenge earlier this year, Citi global head of the public sector group in charge of corporate and investment banking, Julie Mocaco said, “By supporting open innovation and providing innovators with the tools they need to develop ideas, we hope to help solve some of the biggest challenges that the public sector faces.”

The Challenge encourages technology companies to develop solutions that “promote integrity, accountability, and transparency in the public sector.” Competition organizers crowd-sourced a set of “pain points” ranging from financial transactions and information security to analytics and financial crime to provide contest participants with potential “solution areas” in which to innovate. The 103 finalists are presenting their pilot-ready technologies at live demonstration events in Abu Dhabi, UAE; Dublin, Ireland; Mexico City, Mexico; Buenos Aires, Argentina; Singapore; and Hyderabad, India from mid-May through mid-June.

Here’s a look at the eight alums. Click on the company logo to visit their website.

Trulioo Bolsters Regtech Solution with Mitek Partnership

Trulioo’s GlobalGateway just added a layer of biometric authentication to its identity verification tool. Through a partnership with Mitek, the company will compare a photo of the user’s ID document with their selfie to ensure they are who they say they are.

GlobalGateway offers a single API to help financial services companies comply with AML and KYC regulations. The regtech platform evaluates new and existing users; its 200 data sources help identify more than four billion people in 50 countries. The new partnership with Mitek will enable Trulioo to collect, analyze, and authenticate 3,500 different types of identity documents matched against a real-time photo of the user.

“Identity document verification with facial comparison enables an additional factor of authentication for high-value transactions,” said Stephen Ufford, CEO of Trulioo. “This new partnership with Mitek ensures our clients continue to have instant access to powerful tools for their fraud prevention and compliance systems.”

At FinovateFall 2016, Trulioo’s Head of Growth, Anatoly Kvitnitsky, demonstrated how GlobalGateway blocks fraudulent users from onboarding in real time. Earlier this month, the company added new Canadian data sources to reflect Canada’s new AML rules for remote ID verification. Trulioo will offer a presentation geared toward developers at FinDEVr London next month on June 12 and 13 during London Tech Week. Register today to secure your spot at the event.

Mitek recently demoed at FinovateEurope 2017, where the company’s  General Manager of Identity Solutions, Sarah Clark, and CMO, Kalle Marsal, showcased the company’s Mobile Verify solution that helps onboard customers without requiring them to visit a branch.

Finovate Alums Populate RegTech Top 100 Power List

RegTech_image

Call it them the Finovate Fifth.

Nearly 20 of the companies highlighted in Planet Compliance’s new RegTech Top 100 Power list – and five of the top ten – are Finovate and/or FinDEVr alums. To measure “power”, Planet Compliance used an algorithm that measured a company’s activity in the media, as well as online and in social media including Facebook, LinkedIn, Twitter, and Wikipedia.

Interestingly, Planet Compliance says it has added a “secret ingredient” to the ranking system. It is also worth noting that their definition of RegTech is broad enough to include not just ID verification/authentications specialists, but biometric security innovators, as well.
