SentiLink is building the future of identity verification in the United States.  The existing ways to determine if somebody is who they claim to be are too clunky, ineffective, and expensive, but we believe strongly that the future will be 10x better.  

We’ve had tremendous traction and are growing extremely quickly.  Already our real-time APIs have helped verify hundreds of millions of identities, beginning with financial services.  We’ve recently raised a $70M Series B round, led by Craft Ventures to rapidly scale our best in class products.We’ve earned coverage and awards from TechCrunch, CNBC, Bloomberg, Forbes, Business Insider, PYMNTS, American Banker, LendIt, and others.  And we’ve even been a part of history--we were the first company to go live with the eCBSV and testified before the United States House of Representatives.
