Every startup begins with a problem
Ours was simple: managing tens of thousands of photos and videos is not easy.
Storage devices like USB Drives and NAS Servers have not had any recent innovation apart from the increase in capacity to counter commoditization.
And while cloud services offer a partial individual solution, we're stuck paying escalated monthly fees as our photo collections grow. Moreover, if you own a camera, options are very limited to store photos in their original, high-quality resolution. And then there's the whole issue of privacy and security.
The tools we need to manage our photos have not evolved at the same pace as our awesome cameras.
We were amazed at how hard it was to find a solution. We knew there had to be a better way, and we set out to find it with one simple mission: "Make managing photos and videos as easy as taking them!".
Monument is an Artificial Intelligence-enabled effortless storage system the entire family can use to store, organize, and view photos in one place.
