Panion, derived from the word Companion, is a friend-finding app which helps people find meaningful connections through the use of a searchable human-interest database. Unlike other friending apps, Panion offers an extensive search on common interests while maintaining a clear and simple functionality.

Panion was started by Melanie who, after coming to Sweden on a Fulbright grant to persue a degree at the Royal Institute of Art, struggled to find people she could connect with. She began working on a solution.
