Agustina Gutierrez, TINGUA
WYSE Travel Confederation
Co-founder & Director,
Agustina is Co-founder and Director of Tingua, a company that promotes a positive and sustainable social impact throughout the world by international volunteering and professional training programmes. This year Tingua received certification as a B Corp, joining the ranks of businesses that voluntarily meet the highest standards of social and environmental performance, public transparency and legal accountability, ultimately balancing profit and purpose.
Agustina has always been interested in learning about other cultures, thus she engaged in many intercultural experiences while in high school. As she pursued her degree in International Relations in Cordoba, Argentina, she became a member of AIESEC INTERNATIONAL, and Project Coordinator of International Cooperation Programmes for AL INVEST. Her professional career in the youth and travel industry started as a Volunteer & Internship Program Manager for COINED International. Her passion for travelling took her to Brazil to work at a hostel. When she returned to Cordoba, she opened her own hostel called LINK. Today, it’s a family business and has two branches in the city.
In 2010 Agustina & a Mexican colleague Claudia, founded Tingua based on a solid policy of working on long-term partnerships with agencies, suppliers and host organisations which aim to build a sustainable network to work together sharing the same ethical values, ideals and committed to the welfare of our global society.
