Invest with us in a future that is verifiable and self-sovereign

Self Sovereign Identity (SSI) and Verifiable Credentials (VC) are poised to replace centralized identity and access management systems, which carry within them a legacy of 40 years that leads to massive concerns in areas of security, compliance, data protection, privacy and convenience.

The concept of decentralised identity has only recently been made possible by distributed ledger technologies, and is among the fastest growing and most exciting areas in Information Technology promising rapid adoption across all sectors of industry.

This is highlighted in particularly by regulatory adoption, such as the European Union almost being ready with its update of the eIDAS Regulation (EU) 910/2014 on electronic identification and trust services for electronic transactions in the internal market. Or Switzerland working with priority on a new law that will make all Swiss citizens users of an eID built as decentralised SSI system.

For organizations, SSI is a prerequisite for zero trust corporate infrastructures that safeguard professional and personal information in an increasingly complex, digital world.It is also the enabler for seamless audit trails in complex supply chains and many data driven use cases. See GAIA-X for an overview of the many use cases unlocked by SSI.

For human beings, it is the antidote to surveillance capitalism and the key to a self-determined, truly personal information management.

SSI as a principle stands to change the balance of power on the internet, and is going to enable a plethora of new services and companies. Any company, organization, group or individual that wants to make use of the Swiss eID, the new provisions in eIDAS, or interact with the existing and newly growing services based on SSI will need the solutions we can offer as the first Full Stack Self-Sovereign Identity company.

Who we are

Founded in 2017 in the Crypto Valley in Switzerland, Vereign is a pioneer of Self Sovereign Identity products and applications with a focus on user experience and simplicity. Our team is one of the most advanced and experienced in products incorporating SSI, with a diverse background in payments, messaging and online collaboration technologies.

We build the solutions to make real the use cases enabled and defined by version 2.0 of Regulation (EU) No 910/2014 of the European Parliament and of the Council – more commonly known as eIDAS – and the future Swiss eID.

Secure Digital Provenance is the result of our work.

Why we are raising funds

Starting with a strong group of renowned and experienced investors, such as R3, aeternity and CV VC, we built up the components, the experience and the team to execute. As a result, in 2022 we managed to finance ourselves organically through projects with strategic value. Now, we are at the stage of becoming a full product company, a situation not unlike the one faced by the team that built the first web server or the first web browser. The promise and potential is comparable.

We have the benefit of a well deserved, strong reputation within the GAIA-X community, the European answer to US dominance online and in the cloud, as well as increasing privatization of sovereign functions of the state, such as identity issuance. Started by companies such as ATOS International, BMW, Deutsche Telekom, Siemens, Orange Business Services and others, its roster of over 340 members includes the industry champions of Europe and abroad. It is being backed by multiple nation states, including Germany, with the German Association of the Internet Industry (ECO) taking a leading role.

Our team has earned this position with our work as part of the GAIA-X Federation Services (GXFS) where Vereign was leading the work to implement the identity wallets for organizations and individuals, as well as the Trust Services component to issue and verify credentials within organizations – the key components required by the aforementioned institutional members.

We need sales and marketing capacity to harvest that potential.

At the same time, company development at this stage is always fragile. Which is why we seek to make this endeavour more antifragile with democratized ownership. Working on a decentralised identity, the idea of decentralised ownership of the company is perfectly aligned with our ideals and values. Which is why we decided to make a first, limited offer of 5’000 shares available on Aktionariat.

Why it is the right time to invest

We have grown from 20K CHF in 2020 to well over 1 million CHF net sales in 2022 - and aim for a blistering Series A fundraiser within the next 2-3 years.

A successful digital share sale today will allow us to hit the ground running, with more sales capacity, and to leverage our successful reference projects on a broad scale.

As a digital share investor, you will not only get the chance to be part of the upside of transforming a project towards a products company, but also get the opportunity to benefit from the appreciation of the upcoming fundraiser – a unique opportunity thus far privy to our larger investors only.
