Would like to start this one with a big "Thank you!" to KC Source Link for inviting us to come out to GEW KC this year.
It was such a pleasure getting to connect with the local startup community. We were inspired and moved by so many of their stories and how they are working to create a stronger community. Particularly the story of one young man named Steve who is working to rehab homes in east Kansas City (that he's buying for $1,000 each!), then turning around and selling them to families at COST! Steve is one of many locals Kansas Citians who are committed to staying and rebuilding the ecosystem and making it accessible to everyone. It only takes one. Good luck Steve!

Today we were invited to join Prescreend mission of make the digital world a safer place for all.
In our digital world, we have the ability to connect with just about anyone in the world and build life long friendships with people we've met through social media. Companies such as Airbnb, Uber, Facebook, Couchsurfer and Tinder have put in place solid verification systems that give their consumers the peace of mind in knowing that the person on the other side is in fact a real person. WiGo has decided to take it to the next level by partnering up with Prescreend by putting a solid three layer verification process into place for all trip organizers and giving our travelers a deeper sense of security.
All platform organizers go through the following three step verification process:
