Oathello has built several digital products to bring this process into the 21st century.
Oathello has successfully gone through the NDRC Female Founders Accelerator, is a Barclays Techstars Alumni Company (2018 cohort) and has been cited as one of the markets most promising FinTech and RegTech products to emerge from Ireland and the UK with Global potential.
