Harbouring a culture of change, innovation and customer value.

Founded in 1997 in Oslo, Norway, Creditsafe disrupted the market by embracing the internet to supply business information to a market of smaller and medium-sized businesses. At a time when business information was both costly and complex, Creditsafe decided to break the mould and make risk data more accessible for all. As a result, we revolutionised the way business data is accessed and used across the world.

Over the past two decades, Creditsafe has enjoyed exponential growth globally. We continue to thrive and support clients including listed businesses with extensive global footprints and public sector organisations, to mid-market clients with regional footprints and single-country businesses.
