Emortal, a UK-based digital family content solution, has successfully secured more than £1.3 million through its equity crowdfunding campaign on Crowdcube. The funding round, which originally sought to raise £1 million, has already attracted over 260 Crowdcube investors.
“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.”
Emortal also noted that 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 its “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 added it was subject to an acquisition offer of USD$12.1 millon by Microsoft in 2010. It is our ambition to launch in Q3 2021 – and to be able to capitalize on further big tech sector interest. Funds from the Crowdcube round will be used to continue the growth and development of the Emortal solution.
