EC Chooses Trustev as Top European Startup

June 17, 2013

The European Commission last week named Irish antifraud technology provider Trustev as Europe’s Top Startup in the EC’s Tech All Star initiative. The Cork, Ireland-based company was one of three finalists in the category and took top honors during an invitation-only event for global investors and startup founders in London.

Trustev co-founder and CEO, Pat Phelan said: “When Chris and I started off, we had this giant problem of online fraud in front of us, along the road we’ve been so lucky to find and bring together an amazing team of people and slowly but surely we know that we’ll be able to eliminate the scourge of fraud that’s preventing online commerce from reaching its potential.”

Trustev topped U.K. –based fashion Website SnapFashion and sustainability-calculating software provider EcoChain to take the EC’s Tech All Star Champion honor.
