Complytron was founded in 2019, by Oliver Lebhardt, Abris Gryllus and Zoltan Varju. It grew from Oliver’s interest in automating research as an investigative data journalist.
After getting Google DNI funding in 2019 for the Source Code Leak project, which used digital fingerprinting software to reveal hidden connections between seemingly unrelated companies, the team started looking for commercial uses for the software.
The founders thought that risk analysts and anti-money laundering officers could use the tool during customer due diligence.
This project did not succeed, but in the meantime, the founders got acquainted with the AML landscape. And that was when they realized that AML background checks became compulsory for a bunch of new small companies in Europe. It was no longer only the banks that were required to carry out AML screenings.
So they decided to develop an AML tool, Complytron, that is useful for companies both big and small rushing to make sure they are compliant with the latest regulatory requirements.
Industries ranging from banking to insurance brokers, law firms to bookkeepers, will need tools like Complytron, to stay compliant and avoid penalties. This is why the team at Complytron is now so focussed on providing an easy-to-use tool whether you need to do 500 checks a month or 50,000.
