Pressbox (Press Release) - We have news, and it’s big - what started off as a social media service for restaurants in New York two years ago has grown into a fully funded with a $1.25 million valuation!

The idea: As an undergraduate student at NYU, Armand Poonawala saw a gap in the market for 97% of U.S businesses that needed social media marketing versus the unaffordable/ poor quality solutions that were available to them. He realised that if he could create an agency out of graduates that were getting paid below average wages, pay them more and in turn give businesses a high-quality social media solution at 1/5th the cost he would be able to bridge the gap.

Born out of the realisation of this idea At started off as a social media service for restaurants in New York 2 years ago. Today it has grown and transformed into a fully funded startup with over 40 employees and more than 50 clients globally.

At is a streamlined combination of photography, content creation, graphic design, influencer marketing, analytics, surveillance, and ad management that come together cohesively to form the monthly cycle that works on a subscription model.

We’ve broken down what it takes to create quality content and made it affordable so that every business no matter how small can find their place on Social Media.
