ATLANTA, GA, May 17, 2022 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — Trust Stamp (Nasdaq: IDAI, Euronext Growth: AIID ID), the Privacy-First Identity CompanyTM providing AI-powered trust and identity services used globally across multiple sectors, announces a partnership with letus (previously RentMoola), a cloud platform disrupting the rental industry with innovative financial solutions like flexible rent. Together, letus and Trust Stamp are transforming rental accessibility and risk management with secure screening and financial tools backed by leading biometric identity verification and data protection solutions.
letus empowers renters to balance their paychecks and build their financial status through flexible rent and credit bureau reporting while landlords collect rent on time and in full. With mom-and-pop ownership of over 20.5M rental units in the U.S. and synthetic identity fraud on the rise, this partnership addresses a massively underserved market with an accessible, convenient, and flexible payments infrastructure secured by cutting-edge privacy-first identity technology.
“We take the safety of our customers seriously. Now, we provide the highest level of protection used by S&P 500 banks, global financial institutions, and the United States government to our renters and landlords,” shares Karthik Manimozhi, CEO of letus.
Trust Stamp’s proven facial biometric verification, document validation, and data-protection technologies establish a robust risk assessment process to protect landlords from synthetic identity fraud attacks while reducing costs, friction, and intrusiveness when compared to traditional early-screening background checks. The Company’s first-of-its-kind biometric multi-factor authentication solution (Biometric MFATM) further layers streamlined security and data-protection into letus’s powerful suite of tools, including flexible rent, credit reporting, financial literacy tools, and more, that democratizes tenants’ access to financial services.
Trust Stamp President and Co-Founder Andrew Gowasack comments, “With secure, privacy-first identity frameworks central to furthering accessibility and establishing trust in any financial transactions, our partnership with letus marks another way Trust Stamp’s versatile technology can optimize operational and financial outcomes for both service providers and consumers.
Trust Stamp looks forward to furthering our impact in the real estate sector with letus as we continue to form value-added partnerships with like-minded companies driving innovation, access, and security.”
The partners were first introduced through NAR REACH, the global technology accelerator program created by Second Century Ventures (SCV) and backed by the National Association of REALTORS®. SCV became Trust Stamp’s first corporate partner and investor when they participated in the Company’s Pre-Seed round as part of the NAR REACH class of 2016 and has continued to drive growth through investment in Trust Stamp’s subsequent rounds of funding in 2017, 2020, and 2021.
With rapid uptake across North America in previous years, letus participated in the inaugural REACH Canada class of 2020 as RentMoola. Trust Stamp’s partnership with letus highlights SCV’s proven success in accelerating transformative technology companies in real estate and adjacent verticals and driving leading innovations in financial services, compliance, and security for a digitally transformed industry.
Dave Garland, Managing Director of Second Century Ventures, says, “This partnership highlights the growing impact of intersectionality between sectors throughout the entire real estate ecosystem. Technology built in adjacent industries, verticals or geographies will continue to drive efficiency and advancement across the property industry, which is the core of what our global Second Century Ventures and REACH portfolios seek to serve.“
