What is IOGRA? - We all enjoy a good story

Imagine having an online journal of your life full of all the important events and people you have encountered along the way. A written and visual showcase with chapters, dates and images and a central record of your ancestry, easily accessible to friends and family for years to come. That’s IOGRA, your life story in one place.

There’s an undeniable desire in people to share a story with others. We all like to tell and hear stories. They help us make sense of the world and share that understanding with others. As human beings, we’re natural storytellers, because we want to engage, connect and capture people’s hearts.

Everyone has a story to tell that is unique and full of experiences we can share. If you want to inspire, motivate, or be remembered, let IOGRA help you tell your story.

What’s IOGRA’s story?

It all began when two friends were writing about their journey as entrepreneurs and realised what they needed a central point of reference to tell their story. There was no single place to put all their pieces together, it was like writing a chapter in one book and the next in another, the result was a confusing puzzle, not a good story.

They decided they could create a place where all those parts could fit together into a ‘super’ book. So IOGRA was born, a platform that captures life and preserves it online for future generations.

Their dream is for IOGRA to become a growing library of biographies, an expanding library with different levels and rooms and accessible to all. A place built to help others easily tell their story with words and imagery made from memories, experiences and encounters.

Become part of the dream and tell your story today!
