 Briefly describe your organisation
Modernfamilies creates a unique platform for families. It encompasses all persons of all ages, linked together by all known relationships. It guarantees total privacy for family members and close friends. It provides infinite sharing for stories, pictures, videos, voice and text messages. It creates automatic networks for each person allowing high ease-of-use, low maintenance and the support of ambient devices. It reaches out to person not able to be an active user with the help of ambient devices such as Nabaztags, digital picture frames and more.

Our aim is make family life easier.
Our question is Who really matters to you at the end of the day.
Modernfamilies builds sustainable social networks of high relevance, durance and robustness.

The basis of our platform is our unique social engine which create social networks. This is protected by one of the few European patents in social networks.
Its basis is a unique understanding of family relationships and their consequences. This allows us to create networks with natural boundaries. Boundaries are the pre-requisite for privacy. Automatic creation leads to high usability and low maintenance effort.

We are a small startup with backing from private investors as well as state and European funding. We focus on R&D. Our staff is very international, ambitious and academic. We are involved in national and international research projects with leading partners.
