Austin Cooley & Niko Ralf Cunningham
ForgetWeNot is an experience. It is you and your closest friends' private emotional repository—an intimate shared memory bank that's always on, never cloudy, and full of life's unscripted moments. Our streaming technology makes every group activity; every bar night; every birthday party; and every record-club meetup a historical event. The team consists of Austin Cooley, Niko Ralf Cunningham, and a deeply talented and disciplined engineering team focused on archiving the world's memories.
