It started with a Pin
Pinterest is a tool for discovering things you love, and doing those things in real life. Ben Silbermann, Evan Sharp and Paul Sciarra co-founded our site in March 2010. Since then, we’ve helped millions of people pick up new hobbies, find their style and plan life’s important projects.
