Jambo

About us

It's our mission to create a world where professional relationships are built on common ground and missed opportunities are a thing of the past.

Our Mission

Embrace the power of new connections

Be open to meeting new people, starting new conversations and making new connections. Could the person sat next to you in your office fill the gap in your football team; the person in the airport lounge be your next client or the person at the conference your next buyer?

Experience new opportunities

Make the most of new opportunities presenting themselves - they will open doors and open doors can lead to great things. Say ‘yes’ to every new opportunity and see where the conversation will take you. The possibilities are endless.

Explore the world

Grasp the opportunity to take time out of your busy schedule to see the world around you. Immerse yourself in local culture and you’ll find yourself richer for the experience. Connect with others and explore together, after all relationships are built on shared experiences and common ground.

Our Story

We get it, we know networking is a necessity, but how much it sucks. We also know first-hand how painful business travel and conferences can be. Chance meetings, missed opportunities, solo travel, yet you’re after that next big promotion…you know the drill!

Born out of personal frustration and the need for a more human approach to networking, we founded Jambo in 2015 (Jambo means ‘hello’ in Swahili - every conversation starts with ‘hello’, it seems fitting; just in case you’re wondering where the name came from).

When we founded Jambo, our mission was to create more than just a beautiful networking app, we wanted to create a platform where business professionals could connect quickly and easily, wherever they are. In today’s time-poor world, we still believe in the power of human interaction and the desire to take online relationships offline.

We want to build a community so that wherever you may be, you always have a community of business professionals to connect with nearby.

Our Team

Community and humanity are at the heart of what we do. We believe in the power of building a community not only for our users, but amongst our team.

We strive to empower our team members to be the best they can be, actively encouraging them to support, help and challenge each other along the way.

We move quickly and care about our culture - working hard and playing hard whilst getting the job done. Our mission doesn’t stop with helping professionals to build meaningful relationships. We hope to make Jambo a fun and rewarding place to work and grow.

We are at the start of our exciting journey and are on the lookout for awesome, rockstar individuals to join our expanding team, based at WeWork. If that’s you, we’d love to hear from you. Please stop by and say Jambo!

Our Values

Like a tribal instinct,
these values are embedded in everything we do.

Champions

We are a team of champions. We live and breathe our brand, mission and values. We are honest through to our core and are always true to ourselves and others. We go the extra mile to achieve above and beyond expectations.

Humanity

We’re not only human, but great humans! We actively encourage, respect and support everyone at all times. We have empathy for others and believe in togetherness. We know the power of the team is greater than that of the individual.

Strong-willed

We think creatively and break boundaries to get stuff done. We never settle for being anything other than the best we can be. Nothing stands in our way of success.

Entrepreneurial

We are a team of disruptors and self starters. We think big, the sky’s the limit - no idea is a bad idea. We challenge the old and embrace the new. We fail fast and learn quickly, holding our heads up high in the process.

Inspirational

We are inspired through our community of members to do what we love most, helping people to quickly and easily connect, wherever they are.
