Vcheck Global's investigators have, on multiple occasions, uncovered a startup founder promoting that they attended or received a degree from a particular university on their LinkedIn profile, when in fact the individual only attended for a short period of time or were enrolled in a program where they received a certificate. This information is always provided to our clients as part of our due diligence reports.
In addition to public records searches, our investigative team will gather and analyze data from social media channels and the individual's online presence including public profiles on business networking platforms such as Crunchbase and AngelList.
