Checkfirst Raises $1.5M Pre-Seed Funding to Revolutionize Remote Inspections and Audits with AI

Ben Lambert, the founder of Checkfirst, identified a critical gap in the Testing, Inspection, Certification, and Compliance (TICC) space when his wife’s property inspection business faced challenges in conducting inspections remotely after relocating to Portugal. Traditional methods of on-site inspections resulted in delays in report generation and scheduling difficulties, prompting Lambert to establish Checkfirst, an AI-powered workflow tools startup.

Founded in 2021, Checkfirst helps businesses in the TICC space schedule and complete inspections faster using AI. It’s a digital authority for on-site compliance and trust at scale. Checkfirst provides secure, accountable outcomes for collecting verified, transparent, mission-critical data.

Checkfirst’s platform not only facilitates remote inspections but also streamlines the scheduling process by matching inspectors based on geographical location and qualifications. This innovative approach minimizes travel, reduces environmental impact, and enhances workforce satisfaction. Recognizing the significance of efficient scheduling in the industry, Lambert emphasized the pivotal role of AI in optimizing task scheduling.

The $1.5 million pre-seed funding round, led by Olisipo Way and Hiero VC, along with participation from Notion Capital and angel investors, underscores the market’s confidence in Checkfirst’s vision. The startup leverages AI for image recognition and automation, enabling seamless report generation and scheduling optimization.

Checkfirst distinguishes itself through its API-first approach and AI-driven solutions. By collaborating with clients on proof-of-concepts, including one with 30,000 customers, Checkfirst aims to revolutionize the TICC industry and set new standards for remote inspections and compliance management.

The co-founding team comprises Lambert, CPO Oyvind Henriksen, and CTO Rami Elsawy, bringing together diverse expertise from companies like Nexmo, Agora, and Poq Studio. With its innovative technology and customer-centric approach, Checkfirst is poised to transform the future of remote inspections and audits worldwide.
