Launched in Melbourne in 2014, Memories Group Limited (MGL) comprises two products; Future me and Memories. Together they are a digital legacy platform that allows people to capture their personal legacies and safeguard their most cherished memories of their loved ones, including those that have passed in an ad-free, private and secure space online. MGL closed its Series A capital raising in June 2021, with a total investment of $34.0m.
So, how does it all work?

The who, what and why
I could sit here and try to explain to you why I think this product is important but I think Tom (CEO) can do it much better…
“Memories helps us sustain human love, sharing our true selves beyond the noise, pretence and division of social media. No ads. No trolls. No judgement. It preserves those in-between moments, the authentic experiences that shape who we really are. Memories provides a digital space for us all to share stories without judgement and without the impulse to censor our thoughts.
The human need for connection, community and authenticity goes beyond the instant gratification of likes and shares or the performance that our current digital platforms demand. Our customers tell us that Memories feeds our shared longing for purpose, to know that we are part of a lineage of people who built their lives so that we can flourish. With Memories we can know and honour those stories. For my mate’s families, for my family, for everybody.”

A bit about the role
