2014 Web & Mobile Netherlands STARTUP
CoffeeStrap helps people learn a new language by doing rather than studying. Their platform provides instant access to a language peer, in 2 clicks, and in less than 10 seconds. “In order to get fluent in speaking a foreign language you need to engage in meaningful interactions, talking about topics that are relevant to you, with people you actually like”, say Italian founders Mahesh Casiraghi and Alessandro Maccagnan. Frustrated by their own poor conversational skills and having the technical expertise, Casiraghi and Maccagnan are building an innovative business that connects compatible peers based on their language, demographics, and interests.
