GenKey We’re experts in biometrics. We help millions of people in Africa, and other emerging markets, to identify who they are based on something unique – their own biometric data. Together with partners, we deliver large scale biometric identity programs, with particular experience in national elections and healthcare. Our mission is to give an identity to millions of people that don’t have one. To date, we’ve helped over 110 million people across Africa to verify who they are. But, that’s just the beginning. There’s an estimated 1.5 billion people that have no legal identity – that’s no birth certificate, no ID card, no passport, nothing. Our technology and solutions, packed with over 30 granted patents, are built for the challenge. GenKey is headquartered in the Netherlands, with offices in Africa (Ghana) and the US (Chicago). In 2011 a merger between the former GenKey and priv-ID BV, a spin-off from Philips Research, created the new GenKey.
