When I first met Ross Williams he had developed an innovative software technology product called ‘Veracity’ which verified at the ‘bit’ level that a copy made of a computer file was identical in content to the original file. Early customers included the global banking network SWIFT. There were already some US competitors on the scene at that time. We talked about the possibilities of attracting investors and I assisted Ross to raise his initial angel investor money. I became one of the foundation shareholders in Rocksoft.
