General description

David Goldenberg, CVTrust co-founder and CEO, in his corporate capacity, was confronted to the oft-perilous recruiting task.

Eventually he found himself exposed to a candidate who tried to fool him with fake academic achievements’ claims.

David then realized that there was a very good chance that he wouldn’t be an isolated victim. Had he learned a lesson for his own benefit or was he to react, act and alert the academic community? With his great life enthusiasm, he did react and gave life to the Smart Diploma™ concept and its overall product strategy.

Pierre-David Dewaele, CVTrust’s co-founder and CTO, joined David in with the determination to create a solution for the academic community and recruiting world. Together, they conceived Smart Diploma™.
