About Rewind 👋
At Rewind, our vision is to free the human mind from its biological limits. Rewind records anything you’ve seen, said, or heard and makes it useful. For example, if you’re in back-to-back meetings you don’t have time to take notes, track action items, and draft follow ups - Rewind automatically does all of this for you.

The product we have today is just the first step toward our audacious vision. We have raised over $33m from top-tier investors including Sam Altman, First Round Capital, Andreessen Horowitz, and NEA to help make that vision a reality.
