What made you start your startup and what problem does it solve?
Nowadays, people are always feeling depressed someone has anxiety and many more emotional problems. I sensed this problem earlier 2 years ago and always wanted to create something that could help these type of people as I was one of them who have gone through these problems at the same time. So one fine day No One Cares a facebook page was started and I used to post content that will make people feel that they’re not alone and it worked now the page has 26 million followers on Facebook and more than 30 people are working under that single page. That is we are working on 26 million people and our team is hardly trying to make everyone’s newsfeed happy with our content.
