Our Story

The Beginning

The idea for TinnCann came from our founder, Ryan’s, quest to deepen his skills within his favorite pastime: autocross. He had the opportunity to meet a professional race car driver who was able to share tips and tricks and generally blow Ryan’s mind. It was a conversation he never thought he would have been able to have, and it energized him.  Ryan figured there were other people out there who would want the opportunity to meet with the Expert of their hobby or specialty too and thus, TinnCann was born.

The Name

We’ve heard from both our users and Experts that they walk away from video chats on TinnCann feeling inspired. The homage to the children’s game not only reminds us to always maintain that element of wonder and discovery, but it also means we are willing to play, try new things, and not take ourselves too seriously.
