Session Information

Stephen has founded several consumer data focused startups over the last decade while working in the role as CEO. As a serial entrepreneur, Stephen likes to challenge the status quo and if it’s broken, he likes to fix it. In 2011, the identity veteran started his most recent startup, Trulioo, a global identity verification company focused on building a framework of trust online, implementing best privacy practices, and advancing financial inclusion. As the pioneer and leader in cyber identity verification, the company’s mission is to solve global problems associated with verifying identities online by powering fraud and compliance systems for hundreds of clients worldwide in an effort to increase trust and safety online. Trulioo’s award-winning identity verification solution, GlobalGateway, helps businesses comply with cross-border Anti-Money Laundering (AML) and Know Your Customer (KYC) requirements by providing global businesses with secure access to 200 reliable and independent data sources to evaluate over 4 billion new and existing consumers in 50 countries – all through one, single API or SaaS portal. 

Trulioo is a U.S. venture backed Canadian technology company headquartered in Vancouver, B.C. and recently ranked #1 for Top Identity Verification Technology in a Global RegTech Performance Report released in August 2016. In addition, Trulioo ranked Top 10 Emerging Fintech Star in KPMG’s Global Fintech List and will be awarded with Startup Canada Innovation Award this October. Winner of Deloitte’s Fast 50 Companies-to-Watch and one of Canada’s Top 20 Tech Startups, Trulioo clients include top global payments and e-commerce players.

Prior to Trulioo, Stephen’s first startup, iQuiri.com, was one of the first companies to make consumer credit reports and scores available online. In 2004, he founded his second company, NDS, which became the marketing division of Canada’s first credit bureau. His third company, Pharos Global, was a consumer identity management and restoration firm that leveraged both national and international partnerships with large consumer credit bureaus to deliver world-class products and services.
