A little about the Company

Affimity is started by Venkata Ramana, Amar J Singh and Parveen Mittal. Ramana Venkata, the co-founder of Affimity, faced this interesting difficulty. As a father of twin kids, he was looking for a community that could understand his situation. Facebook Groups, to some extent, does the work for him, but the overall experience was not satisfactory. Ramana realized that there isn’t any real platform available out there; that helps people to discover other people's sharing common interests. Be it parenting, sports, technology or anything else.

Ramana believed that this gap could be filled by simply attending to user interests first. Affimity is the result of that idea. Affimity has more than 25 employees in India and US. Also, Affimity has a large number of engineering and content freelancers.
