Discover more about Detected, from its founders through to its launch, and ambitions for the future of frictionless onboarding.
When Liam Chennells and Peter Youell met at work in 2013 they had no idea where that first meeting would lead them. They shared an ambition to shake up the world of Fintech, and knew that Liam’s bold-thinking combined with Pete’s technical ability could do just that.
However, their careers soon took different paths - Pete into software engineering, working in product development for companies such as Astound Commerce and Oracle, and delivering some of the UK’s biggest eCommerce projects. Liam into senior roles at eBay, Zalando, and more recently, a role as MD of Silicon Valley software company EasyPost in San Francisco.
It was the arrival of the global pandemic, and the challenges it presented, that finally brought them together to realise their ambition.
Whilst sourcing logistics to transport PPE, Liam, frustrated by the amount of people using the crisis for individual gain, wanted to create a robust solution for verifying business suppliers globally. It was this thought, combined with Pete’s technical knowledge, that would eventually lead them to build the fintech brand that is Detected - frictionless onboarding for every business in the world.
