In these past entrant profiles, we take a look at businesses that have previously entered the Business Achievers Awards and ask them a few questions about their businesses, stand out moments and words of advice they would like share with others. In this post we’re talking to Global Business Register Ltd.
Global Business Register Ltd
Tell us a little bit about your business what you do, the benefits of your product/service and what makes you unique to the competition.
Global Business Register is making the Internet a more trusted place where everyone can feel safe when communicating, transacting or conducting business online. We verify the identity of companies and individuals, proving you are who you say you are. We are constantly working on technologies that gather information from official registries and other web sources which enable businesses to make more informed decisions about who to trust when they do business. With our growing portal to over 74 companies registers around the world, with direct access to official company information on over 55 million companies, we develop software to automate the identity verification process for financial KYC / AML and other compliance systems.
What are the stand-out moments or highlights to date?
Stand out moments are always winning new contracts and the occasional technology award. The lows are when a venture capitalist turns you down and gives you no reason for doing so.
If you could share an insight or top tip for SME’s / Emerging Entrepreneurs what would it be?
Treat the cash you have as if it was your last. Start raising cash a year or more before you need it. Prepare yourself for lots of stress and be prepared to persevere. If it was easy, everyone would be doing it.
