We are thrilled to announce that tru.ID is one of the winners of the EIT Digital Challenge!

After making it to the finals out of a total of 450 tech scaleups who entered the competition, tru.ID was awarded the prestigious trophy in Brussels on 6 June.

Europe’s largest digital innovation ecosystem, funded by the European Union, the European Institute of Innovation and Technology (EIT) presents the Digital Challenge annually. The contest aims to find the top European tech entrepreneurs and support them in scaling up internationally, boosting the tech ecosystem. 

Along with a year of tailored growth support worth €50,000, the recognition from this prestigious body places tru.ID among the top European players in tech innovation. With top investors in attendance at the 10th anniversary of the Digital Challenge, tru.ID’s profile continues to be raised as a game-changing digital identity solution.

We are honoured to be selected from among the top scaleups in Europe — we extend our congratulations to all the winners.

tru.ID silent auth: secure, frictionless, mobile

At tru.ID, we believe that silent authentication in a mobile world should be mobile-first. Our global platform enables any business to easily verify mobile possession with a SIM card, ensuring a phishing-resistant, seamless and secure user experience.

Mobile Identity Possession AssuranceTM from tru.ID enables organisations to create a trusted mobile identity, ensuring that the person they are interacting with online has everything:

  • Right digital identity: A verified and correct mobile phone number
  • Right credential: A real SIM card, matching the given mobile number
  • Real mobile device: A genuine, mobile network-connected device – not a bot farm or other virtual attack method
  • Right now: All the elements of the authentication – mobile number, SIM card, mobile device – are in the real-time live data session.

This win shows that silent auth truly is the future of online identity. We’re constantly expanding our coverage to make mobile verification easy, accessible, and secure, and are proud to contribute to the growth of the European startup ecosystem.

We are grateful for the support of our team, investors, and partners, and to the EIT for this recognition.
