Vancouver’s Trulioo has been named to not one but two impressive lists today.
The identity verification company was selected as one of the World Economic Forum’s “Technology Pioneers” and its GlobalGateway platform was named to the CNBC Disruptor 50 List.
The World Economic Forum’s Technology Pioneers are growth-stage companies that are involved in the design, development and deployment of new technologies and innovations, and are poised to have a significant impact on business and society.
Following its selection as Technology Pioneer, Trulioo will be invited to participate at World Economic Forum activities, events, and discussions throughout the year. Trulioo will also contribute to Forum initiatives over the next two years, working with policymakers and private sector leaders to help define the global agenda on key issues.
This is the second time Trulioo has been recognized as a disruptor by CNBC. The 2020 CNBC Disruptor 50 List features the most ambitious and innovative companies changing the economy and revolutionizing the overall business landscape.
“It’s truly an honor to be named CNBC Disruptor 50 for the second time,” said Steve Munford, President and CEO of Trulioo. “We’ve worked tirelessly to serve five billion people and 330 million businesses globally. This ranking validates the hard work of our entire team. It underscores the growing importance of identity verification in response to global challenges requiring companies to meet the highest standards in compliance and security.”
“We’re excited to welcome Trulioo to our 20th cohort of Technology Pioneers,” says Susan Nesbitt, Head of the Global Innovators Community, World Economic Forum. “Trulioo and its fellow pioneers are developing cutting edge technologies all over the world. Beyond their innovations, these firms are contributing greatly to improving the state of the world.”
This year’s cohort selection marks the 20th anniversary of the Tech Pioneers community with past recipients including Airbnb, Google, Kickstarter, Palantir, Spotify, and Twitter.
