Knowledge Catalyst aims to solve the real problems around fraudulent and falsified certificates and verification of the status of the credentials, whether it is revoked, canceled, or expired. This significantly retains the reputation of the credential issuers, enhances the talent mobility opportunity recipients, and reduces the overhead from having to verify each credential manually. In one of their use cases, they use technology to close the gaps of equitable learning and the future of work, especially the real challenges around getting access to quality education, acquiring and applying critical knowledge that, in turn, increases competitiveness and productivity at work.

The company was first founded to tackle the gap in demand and supply for competencies within the ASEAN labor force.
