Project Description


MemoryBeach is a product, software & services start-up. 

MemoryBeach's mission is to help people stay on top of things.

 

We curate products to remind people of everyday simple things

they tend to forget:

finding car keys,

keeping appointments,

putting items on a shopping list,

keeping food fresh (& saving money as a result),

making sure a phone is charged,

finding the charged phone,

& packing for travel

& finding travel docs when travelling...

taking vitamins & pills,

paying bills (& avoiding fraud),

& on & on & on...

 

Why are we asking for your help?

MemoryBeach has been in development for four, intense years, and conceptually for more than 15...

It has all the ingredients of success on its side. People forget things. All the time.

But we're missing one important thing:

YOU

...your needs, your voice, your interests, your problems you'd like help with, & your support.

All of the activities above require energy. And with that energy - POWER. The power to ask, the power to help, the power to act.

Reclaim the POWER OF YOUR MEMORY with MemoryBeach.

 

 

-------

Sometimes you need help with your memory for good reasons that are normal.

You're busy. You have a lot going on. 

Or...

Perhaps you or a friend or loved one received a diagnosis that makes you feel worried, or concerned, for yourself or someone else.

---------

Who has hundreds of hours to discover products that "might" help someone remember better?

Who has time to remind the person to whom you gave the product how to use it?

We help people who care about staying on top of things...

to discover solutions to stay on top of things.

The fact is because we all use our memories, it's likely we all need backups.  

Choose 1, 2, or 3 different ways & create your powerful back up plan.

 

MemoryBeach Marketplace

1. MemoryBeach (memorybeach.com) is a curated shopping experience to help you discover products that help you remember the simple, daily things that run your life.  

We draw upon our deep understanding of the science behind memory to explain what makes a product really helpful, & for whom.

 

MemoryBeach Guide

2. The Guide (guide.memorybeach.com) is a an on-line software platform that helps you choose what's right for you.

It's funny, warm, interactive, & useful when trying to find products on our site.

MemoryBeach LifeGuard Call Center

3. We support all of our products with a live call center staffed by really nice people to whom we refer as LifeGuards

Contact our human-driven call center to set up reminders for stuff now & in the future...or just to chat. Schedule reminders, or even a "social chat" call for yourself or a loved one or friend. 

I'm Nancy Picard, Ph.D., Founder & CEO of MemoryBeach.

I have worked for 2 decades as a business consultant, strategist & executive coach.  I have consulted to state & federal government agencies in the US & abroad.

I am a clinically-trained counseling psychologist in assessment, aging, & human development.

We're in this together.

Let's DO this!

Your experiences are safely (life)guarded on MemoryBeach, from the moment you log on, to whether or not your feel like registering. In fact, respecting your privacy is one BIG reason I started this start up: for you to decide what you want, need, & are willing to share, & to feel empowered in doing so.

MemoryBeach also supports women in tech. In addition to our US-based tech support, we work with two brilliant software development contractors we found through asking Power To Fly, in NYC, for help.

Please feel free to contact us if you think you might like to join our team.

 

See our special iFundWomen page on our website for autographed items from significant women of accomplishment.

 

We are raising money on iFundWomen to fund the growth of the business. We have our MVP (minimally viable product) & have done beta testing. 

Now we are ready to grow. With you!

We need to hire a few more emotionally-gifted LifeGuards for our call center, & we're committed to hiring people with disabilities who face barriers to employment.

We see capabilities, not characteristics!

Your support will go a LONG way in helping us bring well-designed products & helpful services to you, your family, you co-workers, maybe even your patients or clients & other MemoryBeach customers.

How We'll Use Your Support

 

Help us now & we'll design MemoryBeach around YOUR needs.

We will remember you forever. 

The Project FAQs
