Zumigo Announces Investment from Wells Fargo Startup Accelerator as Wells Fargo Explores Zumigo’s Mobile Location Intelligence Solutions for Mobile Commerce

SAN JOSE, Calif. -- Aug. 20, 2014 -- Zumigo Corporation, a leader in Relevant Products/Services device location and identity verification, today announced it is an inaugural member of the Wells Fargo Startup Accelerator, launched today by Wells Fargo & Company (NYSE:WFC). The Startup Accelerator is a semiannual boot camp for innovators whose technology ideas could shape future customer experiences in financial services.

Wells Fargo is exploring Zumigo’s leading mobile location intelligence technology, which uniquely authenticates and secures mobile commerce. Zumigo’s technologies could help protect Wells Fargo consumer and business transactions from fraud by identifying and authenticating owners of mobile devices. Zumigo’s technology also enables location-based offers.

“The Startup Accelerator builds on Wells Fargo’s history of innovation and increases our visibility into technologies and ideas that will stoke innovation across the Relevant Products/Services,” said Steve Ellis, executive vice president and head of Wholesale Services at Wells Fargo. “Zumigo’s mobile technology looks promising, and we’re excited to be working with them.”

“Zumigo is honored to be accepted as one of the first members of the Wells Fargo Startup Accelerator,” said Zumigo founder and CEO Chirag Bakshi. “While current industry practice often waits for customers to report fraud that they notice on their accounts, Zumigo’s innovative technology for financial services institutions such as Wells Fargo can detect fraudulent transactions before it impacts their customers.”
