How we started ?
Ribbon was started during the most difficult time in the world - the Covid 19 pandemic.
It was so challenging that everyone was encouraged to stay at home, but Ribbon encouraged ppl to go out. The idea has been turned down more than 100 times by investors and the people. One of them even said: "The best advice that I can give to yall is to give up on this project, move on and work on something else.".
It all starts from these sketches in summer 2019, few young co-founders believes in changing the world and created something that connects people, culture, tourism and business together.
For years, founder Mumu Ngui was traveling across Asian countries. There was a time when he first arrived in Japan. He met his Japanese friend and visited one of the local cuisine restaurants, where the locals often visit and dine in, but barely see tourists in the place. Then his friend introduced the restaurant's owner to him. The owner was so passionate to share about the restaurant’s history and recommended the menu to Mumu. Mumu felt that he was so blessed to be able to hangout like a local and taste like a local. Then, he was inspired, and an idea popped up! “How amazing it is if everyone can connect with locals and experience the local cultures.”
That one idea in Japan inspired Mumu to build a company that connects with the locals. Herein, Ribbon was born, to allow people to hangout with the locals and experience with the locals. Today, Ribbon is having a sizable community, consisting of 30,000 users and 1700 hosts worldwide.
Ribbon - Live life, connect culture.
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 an in-depth social and culture experience app, where users are allowed to meet the locals to experience a taste of the local cultures, food hunting, sightseeing, exploring the hidden gems and all the other fun and healthy social activities you could ever imagine. On the other side, hosts are able to make a career out of their hobby, earning extra money by meeting new people while experiencing cultures around the world.
