Pinterest's mission is to "connect everyone in the world through the ''things'' they find interesting"[2] via a global platform of inspiration and idea sharing. Founded by Ben Silbermann (of West Des Moines, Iowa), Paul Sciarra, and Evan Sharp[3] the site is managed by Cold Brew Labs and funded by a small group of entrepreneurs and inventors."
