Robin Smith founded WeGoLook in 2009 after a dinner conversation. A friend was interested in buying an eBay item listed out-of-state but was having difficulty obtaining clear information on the item and making a confident purchasing decision sight unseen. This prompted her to develop a basic business model and recruit her first group of 4,500 Lookers (agents).

Known as the ‘Uber of Inspections,’ WeGoLook dispatches Lookers on behalf of individuals and businesses to capture on-site data of any asset (photos, videos, answers to questions) or perform custom tasks (notarizations, police report retrievals, etc). This allows the customer to receive on-demand reports in a cost-effective manner.




Robin’s positive outlook and her ability to pivot the company from B2C to support B2B services when she saw the opportunity, recently garnered interest from the world’s largest third-party claims handling processor, Crawford & Co., to acquire 85% of WeGoLook, now valuing the company at $42.5 million.

Due to innovative technology, WeGoLook is now seamlessly integrating with enterprise clients to augment and supplement their workforce. The 30,000+ army of gig economy workers, called “Lookers” are spread out across the United States, Canada, Australia, and the UK. Lookers are comprised of mobile notaries, process servers, photographers, retirees, and other persons utilizing opportunities within the crowd sharing economy.

Lookers are hired at the press of a button to do practically any task a business or individual needs. They are paid by “Look” completed. With a powerful online dashboard, robust customer service and enterprise-level vetting and quality assurance, WeGoLook brings the on-demand economy securely to SMBs and enterprises, thanks to the Lookers.

Business is booming. “WeGoLook provides innovative services and workforce efficiencies for large companies,” said Robin Smith. “Companies receive field data in real time and with cost savings compared to traditional service providers.”
