Pass It Down is an award-winning digital storytelling platform that innovates how communities, museums and businesses tell their story.

Every community in the world has a rich history and stories of that community’s evolution. The problem is that history has not kept up with technology. In most communities, the history of that city still sits in old books, inaccessible archives, or outdated websites that were designed for academics. The result is that people today know less about their local history and community than they ever have before. This is a huge problem because people knowing they are part of a community is critically important for a community’s health and if people don’t know about their community’s story, they are less likely to participate in their community and will leave/ brain drain to another location.

With businesses, the story of the business is critical to understanding the organizations culture and growth but most businesses don't think to capture those stories until a anniversary pops up (25 years, 50 years, etc) and by that time most of the stories of the business have been lost. In addition, when employees retire or leave the organization businesses almost never capture the knowledge and stories of those employees. In almost every Fortune 500 company, 100's to 1000's of employees retire who have tens to thousands of years experience combined and yet they take their knowledge with them because no one ever asked for them to share their stories.

The Pass It Down platform makes it easy to create a customized platform for any community that highlights their history and allows their users to create user-generated content from any phone, tablet or computer. The platform includes engaging storytelling tools from interactive story maps, to timelines, to exhibit and kiosk modes.

Over the last three years, Pass It Down has been recognized nationally as a leader and pioneer in the field of digital storytelling.
