You, Only Virtual is creating what we believe to be a completely new industry category of grief coping tools using posthumous communication systems. Our patented technology is being developed into an advanced feature suite that allows users to talk, text, video chat, and connect with loved ones even after their passing.

We envision YOV’s total addressable market will eventually encompass the over 6.5B smartphone users worldwide for whom death and loss are a universal experience. Within this market, the company is initially focused on serving 298M U.S. based users – many of whom are millennials with aging parents – at an estimated market value of over $300 Billion annually.*

You, Only Virtual was founded after the company’s CEO was confronted with a near fatal motorcycle accident and his mother’s stage-4 cancer diagnosis. Seeking a way to preserve life’s most important relationships in the event of loss, he assembled a team of leading AI specialists, software engineers, and high level industry advisors to advance existing technology and develop an entirely new digital afterlife concept.

the pitch

Representing a new frontier in human connection and communication, You, Only Virtual (YOV) is a new online platform and subscription digital afterlife system. Our fully patented technology uses AI and machine learning to recreate the unique relationship dynamics between users and loved ones, enabling interactive and authentic conversations to be continued posthumously.

Keeping Conversation and Connection Alive After Loss 

Technology being developed by You, Only Virtual (YOV) offers a way to keep communication going between living individuals and loved ones who have passed on or who are otherwise unable to communicate. With the YOV platform, users are connected with virtual personas – known as Versonas – which are designed to capture the authentic essence of an individual's personality, even after they are no longer with us.

Our unique system utilizes AI mapping and machine learning, so that relationship dynamics remain authentic and the nuance of your most important conversations is never lost. Versonas will be able to text, call, and chat in real-time, serving as a supplement for missing relationships and providing a valuable sense of connection in times of grief.

The Problem & Our Solution

Thoughtful Application of Today’s Tech to Support the Grieving Process 

When a person dies, the loss of their unique presence can cause intense grief, heartache, and disruption for the loved ones they leave behind. With more recent technology, saving communications such as texts, voicemails, and even social media pages has become a common way to remember deceased friends and family, yet we believe these types of missives are limited in their ability to replicate true human connection.

At YOV, we approach virtual communications differently and intentionally, leveraging AI/ML technology to analyze archived communications and reflect the dynamics of real life relationships. Rather than building simply recording memories, our Versonas are custom created and evolve as you communicate to deliver an authentic and genuine experience, as complex and context-sensitive as the people they emulate

*The augmented reality functionality of You, Only Virtual's technology featured above is still in development & not currently available. The company currently plans to be able to introduce this feature in 2024.

Our platform is available to users via an affordable monthly subscription fee and will integrate seamlessly with existing channels for uninterrupted connection. We have also developed our systems in collaboration with industry experts – including grief counselors, social workers, and mental health professionals – ensuring that users are connected to the right resources in times of crisis. 

*Testimonials may not be representative of the experience of other customers and are not a guarantee of future performance or success.

The Market & Our Traction

Multiple Patents, Media Validation, and a Pipeline of 10K+ Waitlist Subscribers 

You, Only Virtual has released a working beta version of our communications platform and is rapidly building brand awareness through strategic marketing outreach. Following recent campaigns, we’ve secured 53% signup conversion, 12% sales conversion, and have generated a waitlist of over 10K users.

The company currently holds three broad U.S. patents for its core functionalities and we anticipate more to come in the near future. We’ve also been featured by over a dozen major media outlets, including Bloomberg Television, Analytics Insight, Input Magazine, VentureBeat, the MIT Technology Review, as well as an upcoming BBC documentary showcasing the YOV story and our journey to market launch

Why Invest

You, Only Virtual is creating a future where your grandfather can guide you through preparation for an upcoming job interview, where your most trusted parent can comfort you through hardship, and where your morning coffee can still be shared with your beloved spouse, even after they have passed on.

*The augmented reality functionality of You, Only Virtual's technology featured above is still in development & not currently available. The company currently plans to be able to introduce this feature in 2024.

Our digital afterlife technology was designed to make this vision a reality and now we are ready to share this new experience with the hundreds of millions of global citizens who we envision will benefit from never having to say goodbye.

I strongly disagree with you assessment of the addressable market as all of the 6.5B smartphone users . I see it being more of a niche market. For some people that might have a very hard time dealing with death of a loved one . For people that might need therapy. A therapy tool for some people maybe. Not a normal thing that everyone uses every day. This is not something everyone will want.




Cancel anytime before 48 hours before a rolling close or the offering end date.



We want you to succeed and get the most out of your money by offering rewards and memberships!

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.

Investing in private company securities is not suitable for all investors. An investment in private company securities is highly speculative and involves a high degree of risk. It should only be considered a long-term investment. You must be prepared to withstand a total loss of your investment. Private company securities are also highly illiquid, and there is no guarantee that a market will develop for such securities. Each investment also carries its own specific risks, and you should complete your own independent due diligence regarding the investment. This includes obtaining additional information about the company, opinions, financial projections, and legal or other investment advice. Accordingly, investing in private company securities is appropriate only for those investors who can tolerate a high degree of risk and do not require a liquid investment.

SE BB enables shareholders to communicate interest in potential sales of shares in private companies and investors to discover, review, and potentially invest in private companies. As a bulletin board platform, SE BB provides a venue for investors to access information about private company offerings and connect with potential sellers. SE BB is distinct and separate from StartEngine Secondary (“SE Secondary”), which is an SEC-registered Alternative Trading System (ATS) operated by SE Primary. SE Secondary facilitates the trading of securities by matching orders between buyers and sellers and facilitating executions of trades on the platform. While a security may be displayed on the bulletin board, these securities will be subject to certain restrictions which may prevent the ability to buy and sell these securities in a timely manner, if at all. Even if a security is qualified to be displayed on the bulletin board, there is no guarantee an active trading market for the securities will ever develop, or if developed, be maintained. You should assume that you may not be able to liquidate your investment for some time or be able to pledge these shares as collateral.
