Richard Grant

Richard Grant is founder and CEO of lifetile (, an online service which provides users with a simple and secure way to capture, save and share their most precious memories – all in one place.

Richard is hugely enthusiastic about his vision and passionately believes that, in a world where people are absorbed with capturing the debris of our day to day lives, lifetile can help to change the way people capture and preserve their most precious moments online – creating a virtual shoe box of memories, to share now, and to serve as a lasting reminder of a lifetime’s achievements.

Richard was inspired to leave a 20 year career in a large corporation to create lifetile following the death of his father.  He vowed that when he became a dad, he would make sure that he was able to provide his children with a more complete story of their lives, so he created a place where our most precious memories could be brought to life and enjoyed for years to come, generation by generation.

He describes his journey as an entrepreneur as the most incredible, exhilarating roller coaster of his life.  Richard is married with 3 children – a 3 year old, an 18 month old and a new arrival!
