« To bring people together so that we can celebrate making wishes come true! »
Metennkoste, the first ‘friendsfunding’ platform in Mauritius was founded by two young entrepreneurs, Marie Christine Lasplaces and Hishaam Ibrahim.
It was after organising one of their friends’ birthdays, that Marie Christine realised there were some major pain points we all have to go through every time we have to set up a group event such as a birthday. The two most important ones being; never knowing what to give and getting everyone to contribute to the purchase of a common gift. This is how she got the idea of creating Metennkoste!
Like any young adult out there, our co-founders know very well the struggles of having a head full of dreams but pockets not deep enough to realise them. This is the main motivation behind why they have started Metennkoste. To bring people together so that we can celebrate making wishes come true.
At Metennkoste, we have some core ideas and values that drive us constantly. We believe in the value of friendship and that people are fundamentally good. We think that human connections are our most prized belongings and we believe that your financial means do not determine what you can or cannot do in life.
