Monument was born from the frustration of trying to organize our photography mess. Our memories were spread across many smartphones, laptops, SD cards, and hard drives that we were ultimately spending more time sorting them than actually creating them.
Which is why we had to think long and hard.
We wanted to automate the entire process that took place after clicking the shutter. This included backing up as well as organizing content using face recognition, scene recognition, album sharing, tagging, and more. We also placed a high priority on avoiding the monthly costs of cloud services while keeping user privacy. With Monument, nobody would have access to your content other than you.
And with that mission in mind, Monument became a wild success on Kickstarter and Indiegogo! With nearly $900,000 in crowdfunding, our team has developed a premier photo and video organization platform.
Today, Monument is in over 100 countries and is seeing a rapidly growing global user base. Working out of Chicago, our team designs and builds organization features powered by artificial intelligence.
Monument’s mission is to create an immersive experience between people and their photos. We recognize that photos and videos have the power to build relationships, communicate ideas, and inspire others to capture the world around them.
We're headquartered in the heart of Chicago - come meet us for a local brew and good food!
