We are on a mission to enable families to protect, preserve and pass on something important; their digital legacies. You may think your memories are safe, but they risk being lost forever. We believe we’ve solved this big problem, as does Vint Cerf, widely known as one of the 'Fathers of the Internet' - VP & Chief Internet Evangelist Google.
Many of us believe our digital family content is safely backed up. But the fact is that as technology moves on; ageing files, formats, data and now - out of date content - get left behind.
The problem isn’t necessarily about preserving the digital bits & bytes of data in themselves. The problem is how we correctly interpret our digital past life - way in to the future. When the device, operating system and software we need to playback our digital memories no longer exist!
How we create a sustainable business with both the technical means to preserve aging family content and the fiscal means to pay for the continuous curation of our digital legacies long after we are gone is the key issue. Emortal is regarded by Vint Cerf - as the first viable solution to this concerning issue - as is evidenced by his both investing in the business and, his ongoing strategic support and brand advocacy.
The solution has been designed to integrate preservation technology with a future proof legacy fund to pay for the continuous updates needed to ensure that our digital family heritage lasts for generations to come. Google architecture will afford users the advantage of long-term content access for generations to come.
Emortal was subject to an acquisition offer of USD$12.1m by Microsoft in 2010. It is our ambition to launch in Q3 2021 - and to be able to capitalise on further big tech sector interest.
