More than 1,500 organisations, including Revolut and Drivy, use Onfido’s machine learning technology to verify the identity documents of people accessing online resources, such as financial services and online marketplaces. Chief operating officer Eamon Jubbawy, 27, and chief executive Husayn Kassai, 29, started the London company in 2012 to help those without proof of identity — a figure the World Bank puts at 1.1bn people. Increasingly sophisticated frauds, and tighter industry and country-specific regulations, helped sales to hit £18.6m in 2018. Onfido has raised more than $100m, including $50m in April from SBI Group, Salesforce Ventures and others.
