Experience Project: A Founder's Story

Everyone has experiences to share - including us!

Armen Berjikly, a Stanford graduate, started experience project after first creating a support community for multiple sclerosis patients. How did he start down this path, you ask? Inspired by a friend's diagnosis with the debilitating illness, Armen built a positive community chartered on empowering patients through knowledge. Along the way, the forum portion of the site became the most powerful tool of all. It gave voice to a group of people known to suffer in silence, and the opportunity to be among new friends, those who truly understood each other's challenges.

Soon Armen realized that...

  • Everyone has experiences to share.
  • People are not defined by a single experience, but are a product of all of their experiences.
  • The more experiences we share with one another, the deeper the understanding between us.
  • Everyone faces situations where talking with people who "just get it" can be incredibly powerful.

After 3 years of painstaking research and development, Armen released experience project - the first social network based upon who you are and not who you know. Now a community that unites millions of people through their shared experiences.
