"Founded in 2012 by Husayn Kassai, Eamon Jubbawy and Ruhul Amin, Onfido now helps over 1,500 companies verify their users. We’re a force of over 250 across the world, with offices in London, San Francisco, New York, Lisbon, Paris, New Delhi and Singapore." [1]

The founders explain: "Our seed funding came from Oxford University, Said Business School and various angel investors. We’ve raised $5.4m to date. Our Series A funding round was led by Wellington Partners with participation from CrunchFund and a number of high profile angels including Brent Hoberman (co-founder, Lastminute.com); Nicolas Brusson and Frederic Mazzella (co-founders, BlaBlaCar); Greg Marsh (co-founder, Onefinestay); Spencer Hyman (co-founder, Artfinder); and Dan Cobley (former MD, Google UK)." [1]

In April 2020 it was reported: "The round is being led by TPG Growth, the deep-pocketed firm that has backed the likes of Airbnb and Uber (which both run the kinds of businesses that need the kind of identity verification services that Onfido builds) over the years with billions of dollars of investment.

"Onfido is not disclosing its valuation with this round but Kassai confirmed that it is definitely an upround. Onfido has now raised $200 million in total, with its last round — $50 million almost exactly a year ago — including Microsoft, Salesforce and SBI (once a SoftBank affiliate, now apparently separate) among the investors."
