Liiingo Back Story
Andrea Sorensen had a vision during 2016 to spread the wealth through language and understanding. Liiingo came to her through a project where she was working with the deaf and hard of hearing communities. During this project she became increasingly aware of how individuals who do not speak English are neglected and excluded.
Working and brainstorming with Ben Whitaker, a software and app guru, they came up with a way to bridge the gap. They wanted to provide inclusive, engaging experiences that nurture curiosity, improve services, and deepen trust. Liiingo features innovative patent-pending technology that is intuitive and simple to use!
