Nov 5, 2019

Blak Hall is the CEO and founder of ID.me, which is solving the problem of verifying your identity online. To be sure, as more and more of our commerce and day-to-day- activities move online, it becomes even more important to keep your identity secure and verified. But we all know how annoying it is to fill out all the same information on form after form on website after website. Why can’t we just verify our identity once and take it with us through all our internet activities? That’s what Blake and his team at ID.me are allowing their customers to do, and it is already making an impact. On this episode, Blake explains the origins of ID.me, which trace back to his time as an Army Ranger, and takes us through some use cases that prove the success of ID.me’s technology.   

 

Key Takeaways:

  • Going from Army Ranger to tech founder
  • The value of verified identity
  • Determining your business model
