    Vanta (w2018)Active • 450 employees • San Francisco, CA, USA
    Vanta was founded in 2018, in the wake of several high-profile data breaches that shook our collective faith in internet businesses. Online security was only becoming more important, but we knew firsthand how hard it could be for fast-growing companies to invest the time and manpower it takes to build a solid security foundation. From our early days of automating security monitoring for compliance standards like SOC 2, HIPAA, and ISO 27001, to pioneering a brand-new market as the leading Trust Management Platform, our vision to restore trust in internet businesses by enabling companies to improve and prove their security remains unchanged. Now more than ever, making security continuous—not just a point-in-time check— is essential. Vanta is the leading Trust Management Platform that helps simplify and centralize security for organizations of all sizes. Over 4,000 companies including Autodesk, Chili Piper, Flo Health and Quora, rely on Vanta to build, maintain and demonstrate their trust—all in a way that's real-time and transparent. Recently named the #1 Leader in G2's Winter 2023 Grid® Reports for Security Compliance, Vanta debuted a number of new product innovations over the last year, including Access Reviews which automates the once-manual, time-consuming access reviews process and an enhanced Risk Management solution allowing companies to holistically understand, prioritize, and reduce risks within their company to build a stronger security approach and demonstrate compliance. Vanta was built on the idea that software can be used to do amazing things for the world—if we trust it to do so. And we can’t do it alone. Come join us!

  • Numo

    Numo is the new money company — built to be the global bank for the newly minted generation of highly ambitious digital workers in Asia, Africa, LATAM, and beyond. These contractors currently sit in the 95th percentile of earners in their country — but their financial infrastructure is unstable. It's fragmented across PEOs, gig marketplaces, and consumer remittance platforms. With their local currency weakening against the US Dollar, they need control on how and when to repatriate funds. They don't just need a remittance app. They need a bank. Numo provides international contractors with a US bank account — and instant, low-cost payment rails to move money home. This way they can hold funds in USD up to the second they need to spend it. We help international contractors get paid like a local, while banking globally.

  • Pax
    Pax (s2024)Active • 2 employees
    Pax is an AI powered platform that streamlines import tax rebates for global trade companies, from retailers to manufacturers. We help file refunds in clicks, not months. Previously, companies had to rely on customs brokerage firms due to the complex, manual nature of the process. These firms often enforce a minimum threshold of $100K, rejecting SMBs. Pax’s technology democratizes this process, enabling companies of all sizes to file drawback claims. Approximately 80% of duties, amounting to about $10 billion annually, go unclaimed. Pax enables companies of all sizes to recover money that is rightfully theirs, ensuring they never leave free money on the table. By automating and simplifying the import tax recovery process, Pax is revolutionizing how global trade companies manage their finance and customs compliance.

Philip was the CEO and Co-Founder of blik, an award winning IoT solution that was used by Volkswagen and BMW. Mathias built the leading private payment infrastructure provider in Germany as well as the first digital car insurance as Co-Founder and CTO. Based on these experiences we decided to build a solution we wish we could have used when building our former companies. AccessOwl can be deployed within minutes instead of weeks by simply installing a Slack application. We save companies that use AccessOwl 30 minutes for every access request, on- and offboarding.
