LifeWeb 360

Ali Briggs (CWR '11) is CEO and Co-founder of LifeWeb 360, a platform that helps friends and family create a multimedia scrapbook of stories, photos, and videos to celebrate the essence of loved ones in an authentic way. Prior to LifeWeb 360, Briggs co-founded The Front Door, a tech scouting startup that deconstructs the university commercialization process, and worked at Google, PepsiCo, Oliver Wyman, and Ernst & Young.

Briggs received her B.S. in Management and B.A. in International Studies from Case Western Reserve University in 2011. She received her MBA from the Kellogg School of Management at Northwestern University in 2019.

Ali Briggs and Rachele Louis founded LifeWeb 360 in January 2019 after a friend’s brother died unexpectedly. As the years passed, Ali’s friend saw people’s memories of his brother fading away. He was worried that he couldn’t remember the sound of his brother’s voice anymore. LifeWeb 360 is a multimedia scrapbook that makes it easy for people to join together to collect and share memories that are then stored and shared online.
