Checkr, a San Francisco, CA-based provider of compliant background check tech platform, raised $100m in Series C funding.

The round was led by funds and accounts managed by T. Rowe Price Associates, with participation from existing investors Accel and Y Combinator.

The company intends to use the funds to accelerate expansion into enterprise and expand the role of artificial intelligence in its background check technology, increasing speed, data insights and accuracy for customers, and nearly double the team in 2018.
