About Indigo

Our background

Indigo was founded in 2017 by CEO James when he was a student at the University of Nottingham, where he created the first iteration of our software, geared towards supporting student mental health through mentoring. Fast forward 6 years, and today we’re helping to unleash the power of mentoring wherever people go to learn – whether that’s at work, in education or through training programs and courses.

Whilst we’ve transformed into an organisation that supports far more than just students, our core purpose remains the same: to ensure that everybody, everywhere has someone they can turn to for help .


Indigo turns companies into communities

Today, though, our day-to-day looks a little different to how we started. At Indigo, we’re all about using internal mentoring as a tool to make culture, cohesion and connection a daily habit in your organisation.

Everyone tells us that company culture is the secret ingredient to empowering your team and super-charging productivity within your organisation. But what does it really mean? The truth is that culture is about far more than having a ping pong table in your office or hosting a one-off company barbecue. It’s about the small, every day interactions that establishing real human connection within your team.

At Indigo, we use tech to help facilitate those relationships, making it easier for your team to communicate, collaborate and support each other. Want to learn how we do it? Get in touch for a demo.
