Connexions comes from the French wording meaning “Connections”. Every day there are people, places, ideas, and experiences that connect us to our life and the lives around us. We wanted a platform to capture these moments.
Each entry, or Chapter, is a digital memory. Upload photos and videos to your entries, and these will be displayed as memories on your personal Chapter feed. Write about what you were doing, or how you felt, or capture anything else you want to remember.
Your Connexions are contacts you’ve imported from your iPhone or added on your own. Add important information that you want to remember about each person – birthdays, jobs, or favorite brunch spot.
When you add a Chapter, you can choose to tag a Connexion or tag everyone in a Circle. When was the last time you hung out with so-and-so? View the Connexion and all your shared Chapters with them for an instant memory boost of all the good times you’ve had together.
Our Premium features include unlimited Connexions, Chapters, and Circles, and the ability to add more photos and videos to your entries. We are always looking for feedback and other creative ideas. Please reach out directly to firstname.lastname@example.org!
Meet Eric, the Founder and CEO. He’s American and living in Brooklyn, New York. A large part of his teenage years and 20s he spent traveling, both domestically and abroad. He’s traveled with family, friends, and complete strangers and has loved every moment of it, touching nearly 40 countries and counting. France for a university semester, Russia for the World Cup, Southeast Asia for all-you-can-eat noodles, Brazil for Carnival, Portugal for an extended summer break, and most recently, Bali to learn to code. Across these journeys, photos, friendships, and experiences piled up with no great way to digitally store them.
Eric has always had a passion for connecting with people and creating new shared experiences, but has lacked a way to capture those life moments and link it directly to the people he shared them with. Does your phone have thousands and thousands of photos, an overwhelming amount that is daunting to sort through? So does his. He wanted to be able take those photos, express what he was feeling that day or where he was going or what he was doing, and remember the friends met along the way. The idea for Connexions was born — a life journal to quickly upload your thoughts or experiences, and a way to manage your relationships, whether they are new acquaintances or life-long friends.
2020 was a difficult year for most of us. We were further from our family, further from our friends, and the opportunities for meeting new people were scarce. Video call fatigue began setting in after a few months, and one of the only things that kept many of us going was the light at the end of the tunnel — the opportunity to get back out into the world and create new memories. In the meantime, we set out to establish the building blocks of Connexions, so that when the time comes, we’d be ready to experience the world again.
