The History Project, an Oakland, CA-based platform that allows users to take control of digital and physical assets and build them into shareable stories, is launching with $2m in funding.
The round was led by The New York Times Company, with participation from Matter Ventures and Altpoint Ventures, as well as several angels.
The company will use the funding to grow its platform, sign additional partnerships and scale its History Concierge service.
Led by Niles Lichtenstein, CEO and co-founder, The History Project connects memories and artifacts scattered over digital, social, and physical worlds for users to create collaborative and interactive life narratives.
The platform combines capturing significant memories and digitizing offline content and cloud storage into a set of mobile and online tools that lets users intelligently collect, curate and collaborate in building personal stories.
