About us

We bring trust
to the internet

Veridu was founded in 2014 by serial entrepreneur, Rasmus Groth; identity industry veteran, Ian Green; and technologist Flavio Heleno. Our mission is to bring trust to the internet with global and cost-effective digital identity solutions.

Originally established in Copenhagen (Rasmus's home city), Veridu is now headquartered in London with a further office in Sao Carlos, Brazil, where our technical team is based.

Current investors in Veridu include Worldpay, Force Over Mass Capital, Callatay and Wouters Ventures, as well as Philip McGriskin and Paul Townsend, founders of Envoy (sold to Worldpay).
