Our Story

After organizing a group trip to Paris, experiencing a corporate layoff, and taking a masters level deep dive into neurology, Jaqui McCarthy found herself on a journey in search of meaning and purpose. Along her journey she realized that only two things matter:

1) The memories we create

2) The people we created those memories with

She then made it her mission, the WiGo mission, to bring real, raw, and authentic connection into our digital world. Jaqui went to work to create a platform that empower people to live deeper, more intention driven lives through travel, by providing them with the tools, resources, and audience to travel for a living… or just for fun, while utilizing personality based learning systems and A.I. to connect kindred travelers to group trips and shared experiences, and so WiGo came to be.
