Google+ Pinterest LinkedIn Tumblr +

I am actually an Ethical Hacker and Youngest Security Researcher who got acknowledgements from Adobe, Apple, Nokia, Yahoo, Oracle, Sony, Cisco, Juniper, AT&T, Microsoft and 100+ more and also Founder of InfoSec based Startup known as SecurityWall.co besides that I also run Place Me.

Idea:

PlaceMe helps students seeking hostels and spaces in Pakistan. No matter where your curiosity takes you next, our hostels put you at the heart of the action at budget prices. The sleek, simple design makes searching on the go a fun and easy experience.

Problem:

Students mostly stucked at what to do if we got admission in institute then where to live ? or what if owner of hostel kick us ? where we can find our own choice hostel near to my college/university. Where to get easy accommodation with my own age mates? where to get shared rooms? Beside that , Employees came from other cities also face same , even someone came from other city just for some working days to other city need accommodation not in a hotel at it cost much , so any solution to this ? Same thing Startups face in seeking of working space,same thing tourists seeks , but we are now mainly focus on Students as they are in large amount and really need to solve this prob.

Solution:

Solution is PlaceMe.pk , Free Ad post your Shared room , Earn Money through a small bed space . No Bed space need one? File a Request for it (Coming Soon)

Working Days:

Me and Co-Founder were participating in StartupIstanbul in Sep2015 for presenting our other startup which is mine startup focusing on CyberSecurity , so in Istanbul we experienced that as we facing this sort of issue , how people in Pakistan are facing that issue and having no solution .
So actually started our work on product from September and Launched in Feb2016.

Numbers:

Till now 30+ days passed and we have 150+ hostels in PlaceMe, and almost 80+ active users , some of them we contact said that , they got response of their ads .
We also think as numbers of hostels increase , response and hype of PlaceMe will also increase and for this increasing we are working on our strategies to cover all Pakistan .
