Check Out Our New Mockups!
My name is Kevin Hernandez and I'm the CEO and Co-Founder of RecCheck. I come from a diverse background with my mom being from the Philippines while my dad is from El Salvador. My mother came to the US in the 80s in order to discover the American dream. This is where she met my father who escaped the civil war going on in El Salvador and also had the same goal in mind. My parents wanted to make sure that me and my sister had the best opportunity to get ahead in life through education and hard work. For this reason, my parents set the example by working hard to make sure that we were successful in school. Because of this example, I went on to attend Arizona State University where I graduated Magna Cum Laude and worked at two incubators called NestGSV and Venture Catalyst at ASU. Most recently, I attended a boarding school for entrepreneurs located in San Mateo, CA called Draper University (draperuniversity.com). Here, I got to learn directly from legendary Venture Capitalist Tim Draper and from several successful entrepreneurs.
With your help, I want to create RecCheck, which will be a mobile app that encourages people to get out there and play sports. With RecCheck, a user can create a profile and find players around them to setup a basketball game, soccer game, football game, baseball game, etc. I'm here to make pickup games happen. This campaign is important to me because I have a goal of connecting people through the power of pickup games. I'm on a mission to create a more active planet where people can easily create games with those around them.
With your help, we can make RecCheck a reality! With the contributions from this crowdfunding campaign, we can take the first step towards and more active and playful planet!
