Kemento is a way to store your memories, for yourself, your partner and your family. Store more than just a photo or video, include when, where and who you were with.

There are intentionally no likes, comments, or social pressures but you can share that moment with anyone via email, where it appears in their inbox, and can be accepted or declined within the app.

Kemento is consumer focussed, aimed at anyone who’s interested in looking to store their memories beyond social media or on a computer at home. It offers a level of redundancy those platforms can’t provide, in a safe, secure, ad-free application.

To set the scene, the project started just over six years ago when my first daughter, Elsie, was born. We quickly discovered that we were going to be taking a lot of photos and videos of her but didn’t specifically have anywhere to put them, let alone share them with family and friends. Social media wasn’t the place, as I was keen not spam anyone and everyone with baby photos.

I’ve been a web developer, and a senior one at that, for many years, building things since 1996 and it definitely felt like I could build something around it. Originally it started out as something for us, but eventually became what it is today.

---
I feel hugely passionate about this project and extremely keen to keep it running, but that task requires some cashflow, something I can't sustain myself completely. I've very fortunate that during the summer we pass through the YC Startup School and picked up grants from Amazon, Google and DigitalOcean which help maintain the platform at present.

Originally, Kemento was going to be a paid-for service as I'm adamant that I want it to be ad-free with no third-party access, as I value my privacy, especially given the nature of the memories I'm uploading.
I know others value this too, so I'm asking for anything you can afford to donate so that I can now make Kemento completely free to use, ad-free and private.
