As the memory company, we want to give you as many opportunities to interact with your own stories as well as others’. With Lumhaa,
you can add your own memories, engage with others’ memories, or walk to see memories appear on your screen as you pass by where they were created.
Lumhaa World is a service crafted primarily for large groups and organizations. In a Lumhaa World, members can record their
memories about the group to store in their jars, share these memories with the rest of the World, or make them public to be shared beyond the World. World administrators can access public memories created within the World to use on other web properties.
Shriya Sekhsaria is the founder and CEO of Lumhaa. When she was about four years old, her family was convinced that she would be kidnapped because of her habit to ask strangers about their life stories. Since then, she’s been dreaming about different versions of Lumhaa and hopes it will tackle the two problems she cares most about -- loneliness and a rising lack of empathy in the world. Outside of Lumhaa, Shriya is a nationally ranked archer, a best-selling novelist, and enjoys time on stage and on trading floors. She graduated from Princeton University (summa cum laude, phi beta kappa) with a degree in Psychology and certificates in entrepreneurship, european cultural studies, and finance.
