Remento recently announced it closed $3 million. 

Funding amount: $3 million

Funding round: Seed round

Investors: Led by Upfront Ventures, along with a group of angel investors, including Brooke Hammerling, Chuck Davis, Dan Nova, Emmy Rossum, Sam Esmail, and Sarah Harden

What does Remento do: Remento is a company dedicated to capturing and preserving family stories that recently launched its first product, which is the Remento iOS app. The company’s new mobile app provides conversation prompts to inspire the sharing of stories from every member of the family – from questions about a grandparent’s childhood home to prompts that add context to images of precious keepsakes or wedding photos. 

After selected and customized, these prompts facilitate family conversations that can be recorded directly within the app. Individual stories from these sessions are then showcased in the app’s interactive playback experience, where they can be preserved, shared, and celebrated with loved ones without any editing required.

What the funding will be used for: Remento will use this round’s funding to expand hiring and extend current research and development efforts, including building features that will move toward their vision of changing the way we document our everyday lives and create lasting family mementos.

Founded: Co-founder and CEO Charlie Greene conceived of Remento after filming a series of interviews with his mother shortly after her cancer diagnosis.


“The conversations our family recorded after we learned my mother had cancer changed our relationship forever. As she reflected on photos and answered questions about her early years for her grandchildren to one day watch, I learned more about her life than I ever could have imagined. That’s why we’ve created Remento: to help others learn the stories of their loved ones through recorded conversations that capture far more than cluttered photo libraries and static family trees ever could.”

— Charlie Greene

“Social and digital media have become much more about passively consuming photos and videos than about really connecting with our loved ones. We think there’s a huge untapped opportunity in bringing people and their stories together and giving all our media more meaning. Charlie and the Remento team are building a storytelling platform with vision and human empathy that we believe can have enormous consumer appeal.”
