'We aspire to connect the world through the power of language and human-to-human communication'

ANA MARÍA & MACARENA

CO-FOUNDERS

OUR STORY

Ana María and Macarena met through the MBA program at the University of Oxford. Having both been born in Latin America and having dedicated parts of our lives to social impact, we realized that we shared a powerful goal: to create opportunities for people in Latin America by embracing their talents and helping them reach their full potential.  

Today, we are solving a social problem –the lack of economic opportunities for youth in Latin America–through a market opportunity: Spanish language learning. 

 

We believe that the main objective of learning a language is to be able to connect with other people and have an unique cultural experience!
