Proxy is a provider of digital identities for the physical world empowering people with a personal identity signal for universal access.

Proxy is a new simpler way to access your offices, buildings, and all the things you interact with in the physical world.

Proxy was founded in 2016 by Denis Mars and Simon Ratner. The company is headquartered in San Francisco, California, with offices in New York City, Chicago, Shanghai, Taipei, Sydney, and Stockholm, Sweden.

Proxy's mission is to digitize your identity and make it universally accessible, secure and private.

Proxy provides people with frictionless mobile access throughout secured buildings and gives users the ability to completely personalize their workplace experiences. Its identity signal, emitted from a smartphone, gives people frictionless access to any space or device, similar to a universal single sign-on for the physical world. 


Proxy is positioning to become the standard for physical world identity verification and service personalization across industries such as ride-sharing, commercial and public transportation, hospitality, and entertainment. Today, large enterprises like Doordash, Dropbox and Accenture enable their employees, visitors and tenants to use their Proxy signals for frictionless smartphone-based access through secured doors, elevators and turnstiles, and to create personalized experiences throughout the workplace.


Proxy is backed by Kleiner Perkins, Scale Venture Partners, Y Combinator, Silicon Valley Bank, West Ventures and others. The company raised $42M in a Series B round on Mar 16, 2020. This brings Proxy's total funding to $58.6M to date.
