Certifier.me is a polish-based startup that creates verifiable infrastructure for managing digital credentials, certificates, and diplomas. The Certifier solution is designed to help universities, businesses, and institutions improve the efficiency of the credentialing process without the need for printed versions of documents.
Our mission is to create a trusted infrastructure that will become the standard for digital certificate issuance, storage, and verification. Currently in the marketplace, a "digital certificate" means a scanned paper document. Students get just such a "PDF certificate" after graduating from college, sometimes worth $100-150K. The situation is absurd and we want to change it.
Vladyslav Turak, co-founder of Certifier
The move to digital documents and electronic signatures is growing in popularity across organizations. As an investor in our portfolio, we have a company like Autenti that offers e-signature services. We see that certificate providers will be able to develop further areas of digitalization of document workflows and we strongly believe in the market in which Certifier operates".
