Our Story

Find out about where Tania came from and who we are

Tania.ai is named after Donnamaree Ryder’s mother and is the fulfilment of a promise she made as a child to use her skills to help others get ahead.

“I come from a low socio-economic background and when I was little my mum and I used to dream about what it would be like to be financially secure and have enough money to buy basic things like milk and bread.

“And so we devised a master plan that I’d get educated, because she wasn’t, and when I figured out how businesses and money worked then I would bring back that knowledge to help everyone else. That is where Tania.ai came from.”  Donnamaree Ryder
