The Master Plan
Damon Schechter, President of The Legacy Corporation

Background: My day job until recently was running an ecommerce logistics company called Shipwire, but I am now full time helping formulate the business and product strategy for The Legacy Corporation. I have also been the primary funding source since the time the company was just a business plan. Please connect to me on LinkedIn or Facebook, and send me feedback.
The U.S. is facing an aging population, with more and more time on its hands. The overarching purpose of The Legacy Corporation (and the reason I am funding the company) is to help expedite the move from a world where aging is seen as a ticking time bomb of logistics and mortality, toward a world where the logistics of aging are automated, and we can spend our days on more meaningful pursuits that will outlast us.
Our strategy is to first automate the day-to-day paperwork that sucks the life out of aging parents and their loving children, and then to delve deeper into the family data as fast as possible to automate more, and capture more meaningful parts of the family legacy with each successive software release.
Our initial product is a platform for executor services, to relieve you of the dirty job of sifting through your parents' stuff and dealing with government bureaucracy at the exact moment you should be grieving. We help you handle the logistics of your parents' estate, if they become incapacitated.
Critical to making this happen is helping you organize your family data, and keeping it updated. Our long term plan is to give you the tools that a Facebook or Google use for their own purposes, and let you use these tools privately for your own benefit, with your parents being able to then assign us the power to act on their behalf in their absence.
Without giving away too much, I can say that you will soon be able to give your family the ultimate gifts: less paperwork, and more time together.
So, in short, the master plan is:
- Build executor platform to save your family time tomorrow
- Use that money to build tools that save you time today
- Use that money to build tools that help you fill that extra time more meaningfully
Please send us feedback. Let’s build this platform together.
