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 that chemotherapy may prevent him from having 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 the day when humans live forever could arrive by 2029. Yet men produce a new genetic mutation every 8 months and DNA fragmentation leads to damaged sperm DNA. 

By taking a snapshot of your healthiest, highest-quality genetic material today, you are protecting yourself from risk today while opening the door to the scientific advances of tomorrow.

Headquartered in Geneva, Switzerland and developed at the Harvard Innovation Lab in Cambridge, Massachusetts, Legacy aims to simplify the process of protecting and strengthening your legacy.

The logo: 

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. 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 intertwined.
