Caryn Colgan I can see big social media platforms wanting to acquire this network. Daniel Crayton I invested in Lifograph for its unique connection concept based off of existing social media platforms. It makes sense and has traction with many users already in place. Maynard Craig Wellman Your Lifograph vision intrigued me so much that I selected it to become the very first startup for me to invest in. Timothy Pratt Lifograph is extremely useful and essential for discovering connections, learning everything about a company, and viewing the stories behind connections-- all on one platform. Sarah Khalidi I invested because I believe that Lifograph can change lives. ​ Hamilton Magtibay I think this is a great idea...and we can all use a short cut when making connections Ken Dyer As an entrepreneur, former venture capitalist, researcher and business developer, I can appreciate the problem being solved, and have often used the homemade solutions of others.
