Reach Announces the Launch of its Beta: a “Second Brain” Knowledge Network to Instantly Recall Any Digitally Stored Content

Reach is about to upturn an industry that has remained stagnant for centuries, and will revolutionise the way we manage our lives. It is like a personal Google, storing any filetype or website in a powerful graph database for a more intuitive collaboration between the human and digital memory.

Tech start-up, reach, announced the launch of its ‘second brain’ at the Mobile World Congress in Barcelona. The solution allows individuals to manage the ever-increasing flood of information in an intuitive and efficient way. Reach stores absolutely anything (websites, documents, articles, photos, videos, notes, contacts, etc.) in accordance with their direct and indirect association to each other. Just like in our memory, things are connected to their context: what is it about, who sent it, when and where was it saved, how important is it? As such, information becomes “instantly reachable anywhere, anytime” within seconds.
Founded in 2018 by Christopher Payne, Alumnus of an entrepreneurial Master’s at ESADE Business School in Barcelona, reach is making a stance against the hierarchical folder-based storage that somehow made its way from our paper dominated ages to today’s paperless workflows. According to a McKinsey & Company report, the average employee spends 23% of their time searching for information. One thing is clear: filing has remained stagnant over the centuries. “These days we’re saving more and more information and it’s cluttering our desktops and browser tabs” according to Christopher, co-founder and CEO of reach. “We’re losing overview and forgetting where things are. It’s like we need a second brain just for all the stuff we’re accumulating on our computers”. Solutions to manage the increasing inflow of information have not really advanced from the traditional cumbering organisation to smarter, technically enhanced alternatives – until now.
“Our team is creating a new solution that finally lives up to mankind’s technological advancements, and we’re excited to be at the forefront of this change. We want to make it faster and more intuitive for students, researchers, analysts, investors, entrepreneurs, ambitious learners and curious explorers to bring their digital knowledge to life. Reach is like a personal Google for your own stuff, enhancing your productivity and facilitating rediscovery of the things you’ve saved. It’s not only time-saving, but also solution enabling”.
By allowing users to curate their own content on a network database with AI-powered filing mechanisms, sophisticated 3D visualisations and advanced search functions, reach has created a digital extension to human memory. And they are not stopping here. They’ve got ambitious goals and big plans to escalate reach into a one-of-a-kind curated search engine with hand-picked content around particular topics, extending into a powerful collaborative research and learning platform.

About reach

Reach is like a personal Google, but works just like a brain. It has reimagined filing, centralising all of the user’s information (websites, documents, articles, pictures, etc.) and storing it in a powerful graph database rather than traditional folders. Ultimately, it keeps things interconnected, instantly reachable anywhere anytime, simplifying the way we store and find information. Find out more at
