We are passionate about education and innovation.

We have built an unique platform for the development and evaluation of the 21st century skills. Its main targets are students, young professionals, and companies. Communication, creativity, the ability of solving problems… are essential skills to face the contemporary world’s challenges and stand out in the job market. These skills are developed in a active and dynamic way.

We have created our own, innovative methodology with online collaborative work and advanced algorithms for assessment, which offer an precise profile and potential analysis of theses skills.

We bet on technology to democratize and impact the greatest number of people. We also bet on gamification as a strategy to guarantee a greater engagement throughout the learning process.


Tamboro means “for all, no exceptions” in the Ingarikós language. Ingarikós is an indigenous population who lives near Monte Roraima in the border between Brazil, Venezuela, and Guyana.

We never doubted this was the perfect name for a company that believes education, and lifelong learning are the only way to transform the society we have into the society we want.


For all, no exceptions.
