How we started ?
Ribbon began during the toughest time in the world - the Covid-19 pandemic.
It was a time when everyone was told to stay home, but Ribbon encouraged people to go out. The idea faced rejection more than 100 times from investors and others. One person even said, "The best advice I can give you is to give up on this project, move on, and work on something else."
It all began with some sketches in the summer of 2019. A group of young co-founders shared a belief in the power to change the world. They set out to create something that would bring people, culture, tourism, and business together.
For years, Mumu traveled across countries in Asia like Japan and Taiwan for work. However, he found that his experiences with tourist attractions were often disappointing. What truly stayed with him were the wonderful moments he shared with local people. Through these connections, he learned about their culture, language, food, stories, and the hidden gems only locals knew about. Mumu wanted to bring these special memories to life and share them with everyone. So, he came up with an idea for a social networking app called Ribbon.
Ribbon aimed to connect travelers from around the world with locals in a safe and meaningful way. Mumu believed that everyone's time and value were valuable, so the app required a small payment. Today, Ribbon has grown into a vibrant community with over 43,000 users and 2,600 hosts worldwide. It continues to allow people to hang out and experience the world alongside locals, creating lasting connections that celebrate the beauty of cultural exchange.
Ribbon - Live life, connect cultures.
Everything we do is devoted to one idea. We dream of a better world, where people can exchange culture with one another when travelling through Ribbon. With Ribbon, we bring people together from different cultures, backgrounds and races. Overcome racial discrimination and improve human relationships.
Together, we can change the world for the better.
Ribbon is a special app that helps you connect with people from different places and cultures. You can meet local residents and have amazing experiences, like trying local food, exploring cool places, and discovering hidden gems. It's all about having fun and making new friends while enjoying healthy social activities. And for those who enjoy sharing their interests, Ribbon offers a chance to turn their hobbies into a job. They can earn extra money by hosting visitors and learning about cultures from all around the globe. Ribbon is about building connections, trying new things, and creating memories that will stay with you forever.
