BeenVerified was founded in New York by Josh Levy and Ross Cohen in 2007. At the time, their mission was to provide easy and affordable access to public records - something that, in 2007, was only really accessible to corporations. Since then our mission has expanded to developing products and services that grant access to information and data across a number of verticals. In service of this mission, BeenVerified has launched 5 consumer brands including BeenVerified, Numberguru, PeopleLooker, NeighborWho, and Ownerly.
In today?s ever-changing world, filled with fake news, deception and a lack of transparency, we believe equal access to unbiased data and information can allow our customers to empower and protect themselves. Our mission is to develop a diverse portfolio of technologies, products, and services, that give that access to all people.
