Crain’s Chicago Names MemoryWeb to 2022 Most Innovative Companies List

CHICAGO, IL — October 24, 2022 — MemoryWeb, a digital photo organizing and metadata management company, has been named #4 on Crain’s Chicago Business Most Innovative Companies List.

Crain’s Chicago Business publishes its “Most Innovative Companies” list based on an independent review of patent output and quality by evaluating Chicago-area companies that received patents from the U.S. Patent & Trademark Office last year.

MemoryWeb had nine U.S. patents at the time of the list’s publication, five of which were issued in 2021. The company’s 10th patent is due to be issued on October 25, 2022.

MemoryWeb allows users to organize, view, preserve, and share their digital files with all the memory details captured, connected, and vivified through an easy-to-navigate web of memories. The company was founded by husband and wife, Chris and Nancy Desmond, and longtime friend Michael Taylor, who were all looking to find a way to preserve and share historic family photos.

They built the MemoryWeb platform to deliver on their own unmet needs when it came to organizing, managing, and enjoying their photos and stories. MemoryWeb’s current platform is heavily focused on metadata and photos.

“We’re thrilled to be recognized in this year’s list. We are continually innovating on the functionality of metadata and expanding our portfolio for the organization and management of digital media, so you can expect to see additional inventions and patents coming from MemoryWeb in the future,” states Chief Memory Officer, Nancy Desmond.
