Hello! by NASMM Interviews the Founders of Artifcts

Mary Kay Buysse, Executive DirectorNational Association of Specialty & Senior Move Managers ® (NASMM), describes herself as a "fan girl" of Artifcts and with good reason. Technology is awesome when it's awesome, and the rest of the time it gets in our way, causes costly delays and errors, and spoils relationships. 

Our founders joined the Hello! interview series from NASMM for a deep-dive into Artifcts, a powerful digital instrument move managers will want to have front and center in their move management toolboxes. We offered a behind the scenes look into how Artifcts came to be as well as how move clients and their families benefit from Artifcts.

"Artifcts really has no direct competitor. What Artifcts is doing is unique because it's solving a problem we all have when we have to both deal with our stuff and want to preserve our stories and memories. And it's so easy and fun. It's remarkable!" said Mary Kay.

It was an engaging discussion, and we hope an informative one for all of you who are move managers or are in the position to hire someone to help with your next move. Artifcting can help you prepare, ease the emotional nature of the actual pack out day(s), and bring you joy for years to come. Listen in!

Artifcts Co-Founder Speaks at LongeviTech-TLV 2023

Last week was the first annual LongeviTech conference, led by the vision and mission-driven focus of Dr. Ira Sobel, the founder and Academic Director of Fintech for Longevity Academy.

LongeviTech-TLV 2023 united people from across the globe to create a unique space for open discussions and collaboration on the critical social, financial, health, and other lenses of longevity. If we are living longer and longer, how do we ensure the financial resilience, community support, and more to live quality, healthy lives by our own personal definitions?

Ellen Goodwin will speak at LongeviTech TLV 2023

Artifcts was honored to be invited to the stage in Tel Aviv alongside Laura Minquini, AthenaDAO; Ariel Yosefi, Herzog Fox & Neeman; Ron Gura, Empathy; and Polina Marenkova, Wallife. Our panel discussed the role of technology in longevity to preserve our legacies and both pre-plan and manage end of life with lesser emotional, legal, and financial toll than is the status quo.

"Artifcts is building something revolutionary, uniting in a single technology the power to unlock the stories and the financial value within the objects we all collect," said Dr. Sobel. "The platform promises a simple and powerful process, and I look forward to seeing how it will reshape aspects of insurance, estate planning, and story-sharing."

Over the next year, the conference participants will use the new relationships and momentum from last week's conference to forge new product crossovers, support intersecting research, capture the imagination of venture capital in longevity, and more. Stay tuned! This this only the beginning.

Artifcts Lights Up The Positive Aging Community

“If you want an engaging conversation, ask people about the ‘stuff’ in their homes!” said Steve Gurney, Founder and Director of The Positive Aging Community, after a delightful and high energy conversation with the founders of Artifcts yesterday. 

The Positive Aging Community seeks to foster the connections to the right solutions and the connections to help make aging choices easier and more accessible for all. Within that framework, Artifcts has created a brand new domain for ‘stuff,' so that all the objects we collect and accumulate as we live our lives are transformed from a burden on future generations – and even as we move and downsize today—to the source of personal connection, story and legacy, and financial security.

“It’s not enough to capture memories with journals and interviews and ignore all the ‘stuff,’ and today we learned that The Positive Aging Community agrees,” said Artifcts co-founder Heather Nickerson.  “There’s a lot of frustration and exhaustion out there because of the burden stuff has become to store, sort through, and find future homes for. If we can alleviate that burden and capture the meaning, memories, histories behind our belongings as well, we’ve made the world better.”

The entire discussion with The Positive Aging Community is available on instant replay here. The discussion ranged far and wide. A few themes we touched on included:

  • The simplicity of creating Artifcts – As Steve said, if you can join a Zoom call, you can create an Artifct. 
  • No need to be a storyteller or have that kind of time in order to create Artifcts. Just write five words, e.g. “My mother gave me it.”
  • Collaborating through Artifcts' invite-only circles and shared editing privileges to capture stories you do not personally know at all or only in light detail
  • How to Artifct large photo, document, and other collections
  • Making Artifcts more accessible to those who are less comfortable on computers and smart phones through Artifcting with a child or grandchild
  • Finding the right solution for your needs and making sure you know how you can download your digital assets and assign legacy contacts so your digital assets are not lost in cyberspace in the event you or a loved one passes away.

Celebrating 1 Year of Artifcts!

Dear Reader,

We’re celebrating Artifct’s first birthday tomorrow! 

We often joked at the beginning that building a company was a lot like raising a child—it takes a village, with all kinds of people, supporters, and even village elders to guide us along the way. The first year proved this out—we built a highly functional, fun, and powerful platform with the help of our diverse and talented village. It was everything and nothing that we expected.  

Our first year...was everything and nothing that we expected

Launching during a pandemic comes with inherent uncertainties. We had hoped for many more opportunities to interact in-person with our Artifcts community—from Arti Live events to pop ups around the country—that we could not in good conscience pursue. At the same time, we were able to build our company to thrive from a virtual-only standpoint that is not only pandemic proof but recession proof. We focused on local roots and communities to bring them what they needed most—human connection. No risky events or travel required.  

Of the many highs was our participation in the AARP Innovation Labs accelerator program and the partnerships that came out of our local communities and networks. We have a thriving partnership network to ensure all of life's moments and ‘stuff’ are addressed from digitization and preservation to videographies and genealogy research and storytelling. Through our partnership with Unwrapit, we’re even enabling companies to gift sustainably and meaningfully. We also recently announced our “What’s it worth?” feature supported by Heritage Auctions to help our members preserve and share the value behind their stuff. (Have you tried it yet?)  

Our strategic advisory board has been game changing as well, helping as we grow and expand our reach to new markets. We have vast expertise behind us to keep us on the frontline of technology, online community, estate and financial management, and stuff! If you missed our announcement introducing our newest advisory board member Matt Paxton, you can view it here. 

And of course, Artifcts itself is the ultimate representation of how far we’ve come in only one year. We’ve delivered key new features such as audio and video, file sharing from alternative storage sites, building networks, and so much more. All these features are custom designed in our patent-pending platform where privacy and security come first.  

We continue to enable our community to make the choices that are right for them, just as we are redefining Artifcts to be what is valuable to you. We’re calling it Human Media 1.0 and we invite you to join us as we joyfully kick off year two of Artifcts. 

Happy Artifcting,
