The Ribbon team – founder Darren and his co-founders, Ashley, Kee Yew, and Richard, had to re-evaluate and reflect upon what was next for them when the pandemic hit. As 20 something years old who had just moved back from Australia, they got together to think of ways to empower the wellbeing of the Southeast Asian community and to cultivate the spirit of giving back. Thus, the idea of spreading joy through curated gifts led to the formation of the startup, Ribbon Gifting, in April 2021.
The act of gifting is personal and a way to show people that we care for them. However, the pandemic has taught us that intangible gifts such as support, and community can make an impact on the lives of the people around us. As technology has become so integral in human connection, we thought that the art of curated gifts at the tap of a screen could help people show their loved ones they care, wherever they are in the world. Ribbon aspires to enrich the lives of the Southeast Asian community through gifting. Thank you for your support and we are excited for you to join us on this adventure of revolutionising the future of gifting.
