Having been involved in fundraising campaigns related to funeral & memorials, Sandip Sekhon, the founder of Beautiful Tribute knows that upon ones passing people need a place to share condolences and love. Having looked at the available options for online memorials, they all had some sort of catch.
Either one need to upgrade to remove ads, the memorial gets archived, one has to pay for additional features, or something else.
Sekhon wanted something that just helps people and lets them pay tribute in the way they want, without being hassled for fees. He wanted to create a website that truly unites people so that they can help each other when times are tough and that was how Beautiful Tribute was born.

Journey so far
Sekhon launched the website in December 2013 and the site has been slowly growing. A lot of the future growth will be dependent on search rankings and that’s something that should naturally rise, as more people are aware of the platform.
Beautiful tribute offer funeral homes and crematoriums a white-label version of the platform that they can then provide to clients. Many funeral homes like to provide clients with an online memorial as part of their funeral package, so that helps in earning revenue.
Beautiful tribute is indeed a beautiful attempt! Sometimes, it is the gesture and the initiative that matters and money isn’t really a big deal, taking a backseat. Beautiful tribute is such an endeavor which is nothing but heartwarming. We wish Mr. Sekhon a very good luck!
