Memory Jar

About Us

Sentiment

Not long ago, families would be together. We’d create the purest forms of content in the absence of modern technology.
 We’d keep it all safe and protected for future generations. Today, we create and post as individuals –
 feeling more exposed, yet seemingly less connected to one another.

There has to be a better way.

Vision

Using best-in-class safe technology, Memory Jar provides a private platform
to bring back the past while protecting the future.

Mission

Explore the past. Capture the present. Send to the future. 
We give the power back to users and their families.
