First pitched at a Dublin fintech hackathon hosted by Ulster Bank, Circit had an unlikely start for a team of auditors with an idea. The idea was a platform that could prove asset ownership across all of financial services, and verify business accounts online and instantly for the first time. Launched in October 2017, Circit caught the attention of global banks and auditors who joined the platform to help customers with their year-end audit. The value created was clear and network effects began to appear as auditors invited banks, and vice-versa.
