Otta's take on Thoropass

Sam Franklin headshot

Sam Franklin

CEO of Otta

If you’re a growth stage startup, you need to become SOC 2 compliant to be able to close enterprise deals. But becoming SOC 2 compliant can be expensive, time consuming, and pretty complicated. Thoropass (previously known as Laika) provides an end-to-end compliance service for startups, to enable them to work with legacy companies in highly regulated fields such as health and fintech.

Due diligence is quickly becoming a consideration from day one for startups in these fields, with an increase in collaboration between disruptive startups and legacy players. Thoropass has taken up an acute position between the two, allowing startups to get deals done more smoothly and scale more quickly, whilst allowing the established companies to access emerging talent.

Although Thoropass has maintained a strong focus on growing, early-stage companies, it has ambitious plans to start working with big banks in the future. Significant funding raised by the company, that already has hundreds of customers, will see it invest in expanding the functionality of its platform and its wider business funnel.

Total funding - $98m
