REASONS TO INVEST

Reasons Icon

Project Transcend is a mobile app designed to capture and share your life’s story, and ultimately your legacy. By giving users tools to capture and share significant moments, and tell the stories behind them, our platform provides an overall more purposeful social media experience.

Reasons Icon

Social media is a massive global market, with over half the world’s population spending hours every day on various platforms and apps.* Yet increasingly, users report that today’s popular platforms leave them feeling lonely or disconnected, as opposed to connected,* indicating that there is an opportunity in offering something better. Rather than being focused on monetization through ad revenue, or selling user data, our model is based on organic growth through subscription sales, by providing a meaningful experience for our users. We also give back to the communities that need our product most with our We Transcend Program. For each subscription sold, we gift a subscription to one of our partner organizations in need.

Reasons Icon

At its heart, Project Transcend is an experience creation company. As we evolve, we are excited to utilize AR & VR applications to create immersive memory experiences for users.

Redefining Legacy



At Project Transcend, we believe that every life story matters and that the legacies we build are the key to elevating every aspect of humanity.  


But what does it mean to leave a legacy?  

We believe that legacy is not about wealth or material assets, it’s about who you are, who you’ve been, and who you will become. It’s the moments you experience, it’s the memories you make. It’s what you’ve learned, and what you choose to share.  It’s how you live, how you love, and the impact you have on the world, and those around you. It’s how we will be remembered.



The Problem & Our Solution


Social Media Needs a Revolution. Legacy Needs a Home.


When we lose someone we love, we effectively lose access to their wisdom, knowledge, stories, and experiences. We believe that today there are a limited amount of tools available to privately, and purposefully, capture this type of content. We believe that social media falls short of delivering the privacy, and authenticity, required for one’s legacy.

Your story is epic.  Let’s tell it. 


With Project Transcend, we set out to make it easy for people to capture who they really are, what’s important, and what they wish to share in a way that connects people across space and time. On our platform, users have the tools to tell their stories, connect authentically, and build their legacy through soul-searching prompts, media recordings, and encrypted chats.

The Market & Our Traction


Ready to Start Making Memories


At present, Project Transcend is finalizing development for launch, but through the formation of mutually beneficial relationships, we anticipate that the demand for our technology will be substantial. Beyond applications for everyday social media users, we believe our platform will be a valuable resource for a number of organizations and communities – serving veterans, active duty military, first responders, Alzheimer's patients, cancer treatment centers, new parents, ancestry archivists, and more. 



With additional funding, Project Transcend’s goal is to add additional features & functionality, scale our technical team, launch our 1.0 version, and empower users across the globe to create their legacies.

Why Invest


Let’s Create a Legacy Together



*The above graphic contains images of our beta app which is currently available in the App Store for general use.


By empowering people to tell their stories like never before, we believe that Project Transcend is the first platform of its kind, and an antidote to the disconnection created by other social media outlets. It’s a place where you can go to connect deeply with yourself and those you love, as well as a way for moments and memories to become immersive experiences. With this in mind, we are seeking investors who share our vision and are ready for a new approach to social media. 


Everyone leaves a legacy. What will yours be?

TEAM

Matthew Phillips
Matthew Phillips
CEO & Director

Born and raised in the Silicon Valley, Matt quickly found himself immersed in the disruptive nature of emerging enterprise technologies, and began his tech career in the start-up space. Fast forward a handful of years and Matt had built a reputation as one of the highest performing technology leaders globally, responsible for several hundred million in revenue annually across public, commercial, and federal spaces. But you aren’t here to read about accolades, you’re here to know why he started this company. 

Like many things we are compelled to do, this mission was born out of a need to change things. 

As a teenager, Matt watched his best friend, and company CFO Bobby Adams lose both of his parents unexpectedly. A few years later he would experience the loss of his own Grandparents, who were his personal heroes. He then unexpectedly lost his own Father, and then his Mother.

It was in his basement, on a winter day in February, when Matt experienced a brush with his own mortality. One that would usher in a new perspective on life, time, and purpose. One that would change the trajectory of his life forever. 

As a father of two small children, Matt realized that he nearly left his children without a way to feel his love, have his support, or benefit from the wisdom he has to share with them throughout their lives. He realized that this problem had been surrounding him his entire life’s journey, and it was time to do something about it.   

Camden Ford

Camden Ford

CTO & Director

Camden has more than 25 years of engineering, software development, product management, and marketing experience at companies including HP, Intel, Brocade, and Seagate, with a focus on both consumer, and enterprise solutions. Camden has a BS/MS in Electrical Engineering as well as an MBA. At Transcend, Camden is responsible for driving infrastructure architecture as well as product functionality. As a husband and father of two great kids, Camden jumped at the chance to join this mission with the goal of developing a platform to help communicate more effectively with his family and help his kids have better, more meaningful, fulfilling lives.

Anthony Englese

Anthony Englese

COO

Tony Englese is a Silicon Valley startup veteran that now calls the MS Gulf Coast home. The focus of Tony’s career has been taking products from concept to release, and helping to build the discipline and processes that support young companies’ growth. From hands on technical contributions to the establishment of business-critical systems and supply chains, many hats have been worn. Prior startups include Aurrion (acquired by Juniper Networks) and Xsigo Systems (acquired by Oracle). 

Tony and his wife spend their time keeping up with their three daughters, two dogs and numerous family members on the coast. Tony has more hobbies and interests than he has time, but some include music, playing guitar, cooking and baseball. Tony believes that our wisdom, love, and experiences are the most valuable assets we have in this life, and that Transcend represents the best way to capture and preserve those assets authentically.

Robert Adams

Robert Adams

CFO & Director

Bobby Adams serves as a Certified Financial Planner and private wealth advisor for a large financial advisory firm in Silicon Valley. He is in his 19th year in practice, and is well regarded as an industry leader. 

Bobby understands the importance of legacy more than most, as he experienced the unexpected loss of both his Mother and Father in his adolescence. As a result, he’s left with more questions than answers, fading memories, and no real way to connect to the past - and he doesn’t want others to feel that pain. Bobby immediately understood the value that Transcend could help bring to the world, and co-founded the company with his life long friend, Transcend founder Matthew Phillips.

He believes that Transcend can fill a huge void by capturing the knowledge and wisdom of those we love, and preserving moments and memories for generations. His 9 and 7 year old children are the loves of his life, and he cherishes each and every moment they spend together.

HOW INVESTING WORKS

WHY STARTENGINE?

REWARDS

DIVERSE INVESTMENTS

Invest in over 200 start-ups and collectibles!

With Regulation A+, a non-accredited investor can only invest a maximum of 10% of their annual income or 10% of their net worth per year, whichever is greater. There are no restrictions for accredited investors.

With Regulation Crowdfunding, non-accredited investors with an annual income or net worth less than $124,000, are limited to invest a maximum of 5% of the greater of those two amounts. For those with an annual income and net worth greater than $124,000, he/she is limited to investing 10% of the greater of the two amounts.

At the close of an offering, all investors whose funds have “cleared” by this time will be included in the disbursement. At this time, each investor will receive an email from StartEngine with their Countersigned Subscription Agreement, which will serve as their proof of purchase moving forward.

Please keep in mind that a company can conduct a series of “closes” or withdrawals of funds throughout the duration of the campaign. If you are included in that withdrawal period, you will be emailed your countersigned subscription agreement and proof of purchase immediately following that withdrawal.

StartEngine assists companies in raising capital, and once the offering is closed, we are no longer involved with whether the company chooses to list shares on a secondary market, or what occurs thereafter. Therefore, StartEngine has no control or insight into your investment after the close of the live offering. In addition, we are not permitted to provide financial advice. You may want to contact a financial professional to discuss possible investment outcomes.

For Regulation Crowdfunding, investors are able to cancel their investment at any point throughout the campaign up until 48 hours before the closing of the offering. Note: If the company does a rolling close, they will post an update to their current investors, giving them the opportunity to cancel during this timeframe. If you do not cancel within this 5-day timeframe, your funds will be invested in the company, and you will no longer be able to cancel the investment. If your funds show as ‘Invested’ on your account dashboard, your investment can no longer be canceled.

For Regulation A+, StartEngine allows for a four-hour cancelation period. Once the four-hour window has passed, it is up to each company to set their own cancelation policy. You may find the company’s cancelation policy in the company’s offering circular.

Once your investment is canceled, there is a 10-day clearing period (from the date your investment was submitted). After your funds have cleared the bank, you will receive your refund within 10 business days.

Refunds that are made through ACH payments can take up to 10 business days to clear. Unfortunately, we are at the mercy of the bank, but we will do everything we can to get you your refund as soon as possible. However, every investment needs to go through the clearing process in order to get sent back to the account associated with the investment.

Both Title III (Regulation Crowdfunding) and Title IV (Reg A+) help entrepreneurs crowdfund capital investments from unaccredited and accredited investors. The differences between these regulations are related to the investor limitations, the differing amounts of money companies are permitted to raise, and differing disclosure and filing requirements.
