Brunei’s Memori gets $100k seed fund from 113 ventures
Memori, a Brunei-based legacy planning startup, has raised BND158,000 ($100,000) in a seed investment round from 113 Venture Growth Fund, which has backed firms like Facebook and Alibaba Group. The financing was raised ahead of Memori’s scheduled platform launch next month.
The startup aims to help manage services like securing wills, buying insurance policies, arranging funerals, memorial services and will enable users to safely store their digital assets.
“We’re looking to simplify and make the whole process of preparing for one’s death an affordable thing. Death is such a universal matter but ironically expensive and difficult to navigate,” said Queenie Chong, CEO and co-founder of Memori.
With the funding, Memori seeks to grow in countries like Brunei, Singapore and Malaysia, where an estimated 33 million adults do not have wills.
