Ribbon believes the next evolution of social is knowing where friends and contacts plan to be in the future. By reinventing the map and calendar into a combined interactive tool, Ribbon is the ultimate application to engage with friends based on future plans.
Ribbon aims to solve the problem of missed connections and create new ones by uncovering opportunities to meet up in the real world. Ribbon alerts friends when they plan to be in the same place at the same time – we call these Ribbon connections!

The Ribbon Story
Tony Alfaro (founder and CEO of Ribbon) lived in the Fiji Islands for much of the last ten years. Originally from California, he’d travel back to the United States a few times each year to see as many friends and family as possible. Planning his trips was difficult because he didn’t know where his friends would be, or what they would be doing, during his limited time back “home.”
In the months and weeks before travelling, Tony would email, text, call and message his friends asking about their future plans during his travel dates. The result was a significant amount of time spent reaching out to friends and making notes of their future travel and event plans. Tony resorted to an Excel spreadsheet in an attempt to keep track of this information. This spreadsheet became his “travel map” and it literally guided his travel plans.
Thinking there had to be a better way, he recognized an opportunity and began to envision a solution whereby a single application should exist to coherently organize travel and event plans among social and professional networks.
Thus, the idea of Ribbon was born.
