Starchive is …


A Digital Asset Management (DAM) System


So affordable and simple to use anyone can use it.


A SaaS app that does more than store files in the cloud.


A fun new modern alternative to Dropbox.

An archaeologist and an entrepreneur walk into a bar…

History is full of duos that changed culture. Richard and Peter are no different.

Peter is an archaeologist, who has spent much of his life thinking about how we decide what gets saved from and what will be discovered about, our culture tomorrow.

Richard is a serial entrepreneur and investor who lives at the intersection of art and service. He’s on a personal mission to both create things and support creators, all in service of leaving the world a little better than it is now.

Together we are the duo behind Starchive. We operate on three main values – values that act as the North Star for every decision.

  • What you create should be easy for you to save, build from, and share with the world.
  • The way you organize the world – and your legacy – is perfect. 
  • You should always go at your pace and on your budget.
The Starchive platform has been vital to us to easily access more than 4 decades of Dylan’s work from our archives.”
