Pivotal time: Helping preserve disappearing history

PIVOT is the brainchild of Asma Jaber, ’08 anthropology, and her soon-to-be-husband, Sami Jitan.

Asma Jaber's passion for preserving the history of her parents' homeland leads to the creation of a mobile app called PVIOT.

Some of the world’s oldest artifacts are located in some of the world’s most volatile locations, making them vulnerable to destruction either intentionally or as collateral damage. Digitally preserving the history of those items and locations and providing easy access to images and stories about them is the goal of technology startup PIVOT.
