Accredify Debuts API, Platforms Adopt Universal Verification Solution

New Verification Service Signs Up Multiple Industry Platforms today announced at the Crowdfunding USA conference in Atlanta that it has released Accredify Connect, a universal log­in and accredited investor verification tool in response to proposed regulations released by the Securities and Exchange Commission. Following passage of the JOBS Act, issuers are required to take reasonable steps to verify their investors for private equity investments. Accredify Connect integrates directly into private equity and crowdfunding portal websites to make online equity-based investing possible. The tool integrates as an API allowing investors to log­in across multiple portals with the same username and password, while automatically verifying and sharing their legal suitability to invest.

“By seamlessly integrating with America’s top portals, Accredify allows investors to access deals offered by issuers in compliance with SEC regulations without having to share duplicitous financial information or go through onerous and less secure in­house services,” said Herwig Konings, CEO of Accredify, “What makes us different from other verification services is our mission to serve investors. We believe it is the investor who should control the verification process. By putting the investor in charge and making sharing possible with just one click, we make compliance a breeze.”
Premium Partners of Accredify include the most prominent portals in the industry such as:,, & Additionally,,,,,,, and also now trust and accept Accredify Certificates.
“We are proud to be partnered with such amazing companies,” said Will Silverman, CFO of Accredify, “Each of our partners recognizes the value of an independent, neutral, third-­party verifier that integrates into their existing investment process, providing them and the companies they represent with a layer of security for their investment opportunities and easy access for all investors.”
Accredify is also now a member of the National Crowdfunding Association ( and a strategic partner to industry service providers,,,, and
