MyHeritage is the vision of CEO Gilad Japhet, a professional genealogist. To make a long story short, because he had the know how and no one else had done it, he went ahead and built the genealogy tools that he felt were lacking on the internet for genealogists like himself . Hence MyHeritage.

MyHeritage is funded by private investors and venture capital firms Accel Partners and Index Ventures.
