Valid8 was born from the pain required to analyze a $200 million fraud case where both internal and audited financial data were unreliable. Recognizing that many accounting processes beyond investigations such as audit, lending, bankruptcy/restructuring, and M&A due diligence need modern, more advanced data techniques, we created Valid8.  Designed for professionals that establish independent, objective opinions about financial operations. Whether you're a lender, auditor, financial investigator, bankruptcy/restructuring specialist, or M&A analyst, establishing an independent objective point of view requires assessing vast quantities of bank and ERP transactions from a variety of sources making fast comprehensive financial knowledge nearly impossible until now.  Valid8 solutions and innovations recognized as world class, recently named a Techstars '17 company.
