About us

"The world as we have created it is a process of our thinking. It cannot be changed without changing our thinking." Albert Einstein

Building trust one check at a time

Buying or renting a new house feels good. This is a significant life event that sticks with us forever no matter how smooth or complicated it is. The same can be said for many transactions such as getting a new car, boat, or caravan.

To make starting these significant life events peaceful, we are on a mission to remove risk from transactions. We do this using tech and data with a dash of common sense to make the initial interaction between clients and professionals secure and frictionless.

Checkboard is on a mission to make the verification and onboarding journey truly simple.
