Story

Legacy is the only life investment you'll make.

When a dear friend unexpectedly discovers he has cancer at the age of 30, you have to come to terms with your mortality, maybe for the first time. When he finds out he can no longer have children, you begin to wonder if you ever want to start a family and if so, when? When his partner leaves him, you start to ask what he could have done differently and what you would have done in his position.

Legacy was founded to ensure that forward-looking men can lock in their future and store their healthiest sperm discreetly and with a trusted provider.  The fact is, the modern man faces many risks, from the chemicals in his food to the radiation from his mobile phone to the diseases that others carry. There is a reason why male fertility has declined so drastically in the past 40 years.

At the same time, humanity is undergoing a fundamental transformation that brings us closer to the singularity each day. Google's chief futurist - Ray Kurzweil - believes that day when humans live forever could arrive by 2029. Yet men produce a new genetic mutation every 8 months. By taking a snapshot of your healthiest, highest-quality genetic material today, you are also opening the door to the scientific advances of tomorrow.

The logo of Legacy was inspired by the connection between the past, the present, and the future. Inspired by Viking mythology, the logo represents every possible stroke of the Nordic alphabet, and thus every possible word, sentence, and story that has been written in the past or will be written in the future.

Legacy's Logo: The Web of Wyrd

Drawing from Viking mythology; the logo is a modern representation of the web of Wyrd, the matrix of fate (wyrd) as woven by the fates of Norse legend.

The emblem, nine staves arranged in an angular grid, contains all of the shapes of the runes and therefore all of the past, present, and future possibilities they represent.

The web of wyrd serves as a reminder that the actions of the past affect the present and that present actions affect the future; all timelines are inextricably interconnected.
