February 28, 2013: Company Founded.
Lingos was founded after Simon Grice, Mikael Dia & Colin Pyle met in London.
Mikael and Colin were in the process of selling their Mandarin School which they had started and grown into a profitable business. The school was sold in June 2013 for a six-figure sum. Colin and Mikael were looking to invest in and build the next generation of digital language learning services. They were introduced to Simon who has extensive experience building digital businesses. After discussing the opportunity to start Lingos they decided that between the three of them they had the right set of complementary skills and vision to work together so went ahead to found Lingos together.
