- ID.me announced a $132 million funding round, bringing its total raised to $240 million.
- The company has brought on Samantha Greenberg as CFO.
- Today’s news comes a week after the company reached a major milestone– reaching 100 million registered wallets on its platform.
Digital identity network ID.me announced it closed a $132 million funding round this week. The investment boosts the Virginia-based company’s total funding to $240 million.
Viking Global Investors led the round, which also saw participation from CapitalG, Morgan Stanley Counterpoint, FTV Capital, PSP Growth, Auctus Investment Group, Moonshots Capital, and Scout Ventures. ID.me has not specified what the funds will be used for.
Along with today’s funding announcement, ID.me also revealed it has appointed Samantha Greenberg as Chief Financial Officer. Greenberg is replacing Rachael Brinker, who was temporarily filling the CFO role after the company’s former CFO Rajat Bahri vacated the position last summer.
Greenberg brings more than 20 years of experience leading financial operations, analyzing private and public technology and consumer companies, and scaling high-growth businesses. Most recently, she served as CFO of Mint House and has also held positions at Citadel, Goldman Sachs, Paulson & Co. Greenberg, and Margate Capital Management LP– which she founded.
“We are fortunate to have Samantha join our senior leadership team, given her excellent track record in growing companies to serve their customers and business partners,” said ID.me Co-founder and CEO Blake Hall. “Her expertise will support our mission to provide our more than 100 million members with a safe and secure digital identity credential facilitating access across services, benefits, healthcare and commerce without selling their personal data. Samantha is joining our team at the right time, after we closed our Series D funding and surpassed 100 million members. These are big milestones toward our vision to streamline access to benefits and services while ensuring no identity is left behind.”
ID.me was founded in 2010 to serve as a digital identity wallet that helps users prove and share their identities online without disclosing additional personal information. The company maintains a digital identity network that includes 14 federal agencies and 500+ retail brands, all of which use ID.me to verify customers’ identities and affiliations. ID.me’s ID wallet helps users prove they belong to certain affiliated groups, such as teacher, student, first responder, or military veteran. Last week, ID.me achieved a major milestone, reaching 100 million digital wallets registered on its platform.
