Trulioo is honored to announce our selection as one of the World Economic Forum’s “Technology Pioneers.” Pioneers are early to growth-stage companies from around the world 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.

“We’re humbled to be recognized by the World Economic Forum and excited about the opportunity to participate in the Technology Pioneers initiative, working alongside some truly remarkable organizations,” said Steve Munford, CEO of Trulioo. “We’re committed to promoting digital identity as a force for positive change around the world, by increasing trust and transparency within the digital economy and ensuring all people, particularly the most vulnerable groups in society, can access the basic financial services and support they need.”

This year’s cohort selection marks the 20th anniversary of the Tech Pioneers community. Throughout its 20-year run, many Technology Pioneers have continuously contributed to advancement in their industries, while some have even gone on to become household names. Past recipients include Airbnb, Google, Kickstarter, Mozilla, Spotify, TransferWise, Twitter and Wikimedia.

“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.”

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.
