Trulioo’s Fuse Developer Fund Supports Financial Inclusion Efforts
Are you a developer looking for ways to monetize your mobile app? We’re offering a $100,000 Developer Fund to independent developers worldwide.
We are offering a $100,000 developer fund called “Fuse” to all independent developers wanting to monetize their mobile app. The fund will be awarded to app developers who build an API that provides access to user data which will be used solely for identity verification purposes. At Trulioo, we understand that your user’s information is your most valuable asset. We do not store data nor do we share it with third parties or use it for marketing purposes. We use the data for identity verification purposes only. The API built by Fuse developers will simply match Trulioo’s user profiles to their mobile users, returning a binary “match/no-match” response to Trulioo.
Trulioo’s Fuse Fund was created to spearhead efforts to bridge the digital divide by fusing traditional and cyber identity data to increase coverage in emerging markets and advance financial inclusion. By verifying identities of the most challenging demographics — those who do not have traditional forms of identity documentation (e.g. passports and driver’s licenses) or financial footprints (e.g. bank accounts or credit data), making it nearly impossible for them to gain access to financial services — we intend to help drive full financial inclusion. With the help of Fuse developers, we hope to leverage mobile application user data to cover more people in more places with electronic identify verification. We hope to increase the use of cyber identity data so that it may be used as an alternative source for identity verification for the 2.5 billion unbanked people in the world. Fuse developers will help empower the unbanked to gain access to services previously never available to them.
Our mission is to ensure that the world’s population has access to the same services as developed countries: banking, ecommerce, peer-to-peer marketplaces, and financial services. This starts with verifying the existence of that person and then authenticating they are the person you are transacting with online.
Since data is not the primary product for most app developers and technical resources are always hard to come by, Trulioo is offering to fund mobile app developers to develop API services around their user data. Data from Fuse developers will help power electronic identity verification, which will help build trust and secure transactions online.
