Onfido is recognised as a global leader in AI for identity verification and authentication. Powering open, secure and inclusive relationships between businesses and their customers around the world, Onfido enables people to access a range of services by digitally verifying them using its Real Identity Platform – which currently supports checks in 195 countries for 2,500+ document types. 

The Onfido story began in 2012 when its three co-founders met at Oxford University – one of the top ranked in the world. They have since helped the university to foster their entrepreneurship programmes for the next generation of idea makers. 

Headquartered in London, Onfido maintains strong relationships with the capital’s leading universities to ensure access to the best pool of machine learning talent. And while still firmly rooted in the UK, Onfido is now powered by over 650 employees across eight offices in the US, Europe, South America and Asia. It is backed by TPG Growth, Idinvest Partners, Crane Venture Partners, Salesforce Ventures, M12 (Microsoft) and others.
