About Popsa

More than ever before, people are capturing stories through their photographs, but important content often sits on devices or in the cloud, never to be revisited. We’re here to change that. Founded in 2016, Popsa is a tech company dedicated to helping people rediscover the meaningful experiences and relationships that are hidden away in their photo libraries.

Popsa was originally started with the idea of having a photobook simply pop into existence every time you do something significant in your life. We’ve already built an award-winning experience that allows users to do just that in a matter of minutes – but there’s so much more to come.

We want to be an antidote to the disposable culture of social media, so we’re building a platform to help people to curate and enjoy their most meaningful experiences in a variety of forms – not just in print.

Our native iOS and Android apps are available in 12 languages and we ship to more than 50 countries.

We were recently named as the UK’s fastest growing startup of 2020 by Deloitte, and are backed by some of the best investors in the world.
