    Keeping Our Families Safe Online - Part Two

    On episode ninety-six of the Gotta Be Saints Podcast, I spoke with Michael DiStepheno and Kailash Duraiswami about the need to keep families safe online. This is part one of our conversation.

    Biographies:
    Kailash is a technology entrepreneur most recently in the Artificial Intelligence space as the founder of Pantenix. Pantenix is an artificial intelligence platform that automates manual data entry for financial services companies through computer vision.
    Pantenix was acquired by financial services software provider Orion Advisor Solution in  Spring 2021. He is an adult convert to the Catholic Church and is most interested in the
    connection between Catholic principles and entrepreneurship in the world of software  startups. His new startup Fidei is taking on Big Tech by offering Catholic alternatives in the consumer technology space.

    Michael is an experienced software engineer, having spent years in Silicon Valley and major
    technology companies, like Uber and Medium. He has founded various technology companies, including his latest, Fidei.email, which gives Catholics the ability to communicate safely online through email. After a major conversion to Catholicism, Michael became passionate about the
    intersection of the faith and the technology we use today. He’s a firm believer that Catholics must become a part of the creation of technology and innovation, so as to drive a more faith-filled culture.

    To learn more about Kailash and Michael's work, go to https://fidei.email/. Fidei is a Catholic-run technology business that offers email, calendars, shared files, and collaborative documents to parishes, businesses, families, and individuals.
