iTANDEM: sharing has brought us where we are today

Condividere. Sharing. Compartir. Partager. Teilen. Compartilhar. In any language, the word "share" has the sound of doors opening wide to new and exciting opportunities.

It’s exactly the same sound that we heard as we were developing iTANDEM. Our main strength? Sharing.

How was iTANDEM born?

“If you have an apple and I have an apple and we exchange these apples then you and I will still each have one apple.
But if you have an idea and I have an idea and we exchange these ideas, then each of us will have two ideas.” - George Bernard Shaw

The power of sharing ideas is great. iTANDEM would never have existed if Giovanni, its founder, hadn’t spoken to people about his idea: of using technology to enable linguistic and cultural exchanges between people from all over the world in an easy, fun and free way.

We started from here with a clear goal. And then...

Our journey in sharing

Within a year we designed a portal in which people could:

The challenge: Everyone on iTANDEM must have a customised experience, yourExperience.

In December 2015, we announced ourselves to the world on a Kickstarter crowdfunding platform. In a few days, we exceeded our objective and achieved 123% of the goal.

In February 2016, we went to Chile, after winning our place on the Start-Up Chile project.

Today our journey continues and presents us with all kinds of new horizons. We are growing every day and we see this beautiful community flourishing with people who leave, come back, dream, gain courage, have fun, find friends and create opportunities. Most importantly, they share.
