Our Story

How it all started

Design element

Every startup is born out of the secret desire of its founders. We, too, had one. However, it was not money or fame.

2015

All started with an idea

We didn’t start a business because we wanted to build a unicorn! We just wanted something on which we could work together, not in different cities, working for different companies.

So, we tried our hands (rather burned our fingers) on different business ideas, from messaging platforms, to food service, to startup consulting. To drive inbound leads for consulting, we created a free list of 100+ places where newly-launched startups can promote themselves. It picked up well, and we started a paid service to help entrepreneurs in promoting on those sites. While doing this, we realized how expensive (and still unpredictable) it can be to hire PR agencies to get press coverage. And we narrowed our focus on offering PR for startups.
