By: Naughty Gossip
Celebrity experts from around New York are buzzing about Romio, a soon-to-launch App that’s being called “Uber for everything else.”
The platform, created by tech genius entrepreneur Tarik Sansal, will connect users to New York’s most trusted service providers, all who must be muster with a growing cadre of top experts before being included.
Launching soon, Romio is a platform that allows users to find and book local services through a trusted network of experts and friends. Led by Tarik Sansal, Romio is a social movement to drive genuine prosperity for users of the platform, democratizing digital commerce in a peer-to-peer ecosystem while rewarding loyalty and credibility. To date, the company has secured significant funding from global investors with initial seed funding from reputable names including Bob Gelfond, an early investor of Amazon, and several other successful tech companies. Romio plans to expand to major cities across the US by 2018. The company was founded by Sansal, who previously started OnTargetJobs.com, a roll-up of niche recruitment sites which generated $160 million in revenue. Before that, Sansal formed InvestorPosition.com, a digital destination focused on careers in investment management and banking. Sansal has the distinction of being the very first hire by investor John Moon for his emerging markets hedge fund, Moon Capital, which later became an investment arm of Oak Tree Capital. Sansal previously held positions with Yamaichi Bank, where he worked on its Asian Institutional Equities sales desk, and as a Wall Street research analyst at Sharpe Capital. He is a graduate from the University of Westminster in London.
“Romio is a next-generation platform that brings together the most respected experts with discerning users, and we wanted a home that reflects that standard,” said Sansal. “Being a startup, we want to create a fun, vibrant environment that fosters creativity, inspiration, curiosity and a sense of purpose. We don’t look at this space as an office but as a home where the best ideas are thought of, exchanged and executed. I couldn’t think of a better artist to help achieve this than James Goldcrown, whose art is filled with passion and aspiration.”
