Steven Ward is most widely known for being a matchmaker and expert on dating and relationships. As the Host and Executive Producer of VH1’s hit show, “Tough Love”, he gained worldwide notoriety for his no nonsense approach over six seasons. His book “Crash Course in Love,” is a refreshingly honest and handy romance guide for women published by Simon and Schuster. Steven is the Founder of Love Lab, a free self-verification platform for dating powered by his own home-grown multi-factor verification technology. Realizing there was a vast opportunity to provide trust and verification across the web beyond the realm of dating, he started up Authenticating.com to provide identity authentication, background verifications and fraud prevention for online communities, marketplaces, networks, exchanges and applications of every kind through a robust API and mobile SDK.
