We have some pretty amazing clients. In fact, we think that they are our biggest assets!! They span several industries and they are in different points in the business life cycle, which makes them even more interesting. So we thought we would spotlight some of them! Global Data Consortium was the first company to share their story with us.
We spoke to co-founder, Charles Gaddy, about what they do and what makes their business unique.
“Global Data Consortium facilitates International Electronic Identity Verification. We provide one point of access to local, in-country reference data for instant verification to customers all over the world.”
In fact, they offer a global technology and platform covering over 50 countries.
In 2018 Global Data Consortium was selected as one of 10 businesses to participate in a joint Fin Tech program with PayPal and Village Capital. In May 2019 VilCap Investments announced their investment in Global Data Consortium, to support “the democratization of technical tools and innovation that promote financial inclusion.” These are exciting times for this company as they grow and expand their services to more countries around the globe.
When we started working with Global Data Consortium they were a small startup with key employees wearing many hats in the company. Today, they have expanded their team into several departments with an Org Chart that highlights their team approach. I asked Charles why they decided to outsource their accounting and much of their back office. He told me,
“Accounting is not our business – technology is…and we believe in getting the right people for the right job. On the Books are the right people for us.”
We are so happy they chose us, and we look forward to continuing our partnership! If you want to see what they’re up to you can find them on Twitter (@globaldatacon), LinkedIn, and of course on their website – https://globaldataconsortium.com/.
