This capital was supplied by existing unnamed shareholders, and brings the total funding raised by Pass Technology to £9.5m over the past three years.

Pass Technology is a background checking platform which aims to ease the onboarding process and compliance. Its services are used across the financial services, recruitment, government, aviation, retail and sharing economy spaces.

We believe we have a unique offering that addresses the real needs companies have to ensure that they meet both their regulatory and business requirements when undertaking background checking.”
