Verituity Raises $18.8 Million

MCLEAN, VA — Verituity, a provider of verified payouts solutions, announced the successful close of an $18.8 million funding round led by Sandbox Industries and Forgepoint Capital with the participation of Ardent Venture Partners and MTech Capital. Chris Zock, Managing Partner and Co-CEO of Sandbox Industries, will join Verituity’s board of directors.

This latest infusion of capital will accelerate the company’s growth in banking and insurance and Verituity’s expansion into new markets, including mortgage servicing and energy. The investment enables Verituity’s further innovation of its advanced machine learning and artificial intelligence models that are the backbone of the company’s Zero Trust Payout Verification™ and intelligent payments.

“Verituity orchestrates billions of dollars in verified B2B and B2C payouts by empowering businesses and banks to deliver trusted and intelligent payments on-time to known individuals and businesses,” said Ben Turner, CEO of Verituity. “I look forward to working with our investors as we continue our journey to finally eliminate checks and embed intelligent, verified payouts into the fabric of business disbursements.”

The funding comes on the heels of the company’s partnership announcement with Mastercard Move to offer a white-label solution for commercial banks and payers to modernize their disbursements and remittances. The integration enables secure, verified and near real-time payments that better meet customer needs while being more cost-effective than legacy approaches.

“Verituity is a perfect example of the types of companies we seek to partner with that provide meaningful innovation to insurers and healthcare companies,” said Chris Zock, Managing Partner and Co-CEO at Sandbox Industries. “From agent and broker payments to claims, Verituity’s unique approach to embedding verification into payouts and handling the complexity of connecting legacy treasury systems to digital payments is transformative for the industry.”

“With Verituity at the intersection of verification, intelligent payments, and trust, the company is well positioned to take full advantage of the rapid digital transformation underway in disbursements,” said Don Dixon, Co-Founder and Managing Director at Forgepoint Capital. “We’re particularly excited about the investments they’re making in AI to solve the challenges of payee verification while migrating away from checks and mitigating payout risks.”
