"The ability to migrate every offline process online is the Holy Grail," he said. And to do that, parties to a business transaction need a name, number, way to get paid and—most important—a way to verify these things.

Since 1995, Sclavos has grown the company from four to more than 2,000 employees, and from less than $1 million in revenues to a run-rate approaching $1 billion today. "[Nobody] out there really has the breadth of services we do, from a single provider."
