What is a prototype?

A prototype is a preliminary model of something. Projects that offer physical products need to show backers documentation of a working prototype. This gallery features photos, videos, and other visual documentation that will give backers a sense of what’s been accomplished so far and what’s left to do. Though the development process can vary for each project, these are the stages we typically see:

Proof of Concept

Explorations that test ideas and functionality.

Functional Prototype

Demonstrates the functionality of the final product, but looks different.

Appearance Prototype

Looks like the final product, but is not functional.

Design Prototype

Appearance and function match the final product, but is made with different manufacturing methods.

Production Prototype

Appearance, function, and manufacturing methods match the final product.

About

VerEdates is designed to bring out the authentic, three dimensional VerEdater. You’ll showcase your best, real self and you’ll be able to see the genuine, 3D profiles of others. This type of profile is proven to enhance your chance for a real connection.  Our Kickstarter funds will be used to take us from a local, protoype beta site to a national platform.  We will invest in the software we need to grow, the interviewers we need to build out our profiles and marketing support to help build a rich database of daters.

We've learned that It helps if you know, from a video profile, if the other VerEdaters are folks you’d like to meet in person. Fewer missed opportunities and fewer wasted dates. Hearing a voice, a laugh, looking into someone’s eyes – this makes it easier to know if you will connect. This makes it easier to spend your valuable time (and money) wisely. We’ll get you closer to an authentic connection.

Speaking of authenticity – you can feel confident that the person to whom you are speaking is truly who they say they are.

Every VerEdater is VEREDATED – a certified identity and background check is completed – and you will know it when you see our VerEcheck symbol under their Vprofile.

What does VerEchecked™ mean? verEcheckedWhen you see the VerEcheck™ symbol verified, you can be assured that this VerEdater has submitted his/her documentation and has been cleared through a criminal background check within the past 12 months. Our security partner, Onfido conducts a comprehensive national check that covers the past seven years. An identity check is also completed. Look for the symbol to ensure your partner has been VerEchecked™. Learn more at Onfido.com.

Trust that you are talking with the people that you can trust

Our specially designed video profiles help ensure you are able to showcase your best self and allow you to truly sense your connections with others, quickly and efficiently. Look in their eyes, hear their voices, and learn what makes them laugh all in 60 seconds. Be reassured that you are, in fact, talking to the person they say they are. The VerEcheck background check and I.D. verifications help you feel confident the profile you see is authentic and the person with whom you connect is who they say they are.

Risks and challenges

We're looking for a set of potential investors to help us tackle the cost of building incremental software (we invested in security first), expand our platform beyond it's current beta format, hire interviewers and cover some of the advertising spend which will be essential to building our databse. Our marketing will consist primarily of digital and mobile advertising, and promoting and hosting Meetup events. With our subscription plan, the company will break-even within 2 or 3 years, but as with any venture, making a profit takes time. Our unique differentiation of being a dating site that helps verify matches gives us an upper hand in the dynamic market of online dating and social networking. With your help, we can make our idea a reality, ensuring safe and verified matches for all users and promoting security in the future of online dating.
