What is Romio?

Romio is a new app that’s like Instagram for booking local services your friends recommend (think personal trainers, housekeepers, stylists, dog walkers, etc.) but with Social Capitalism built in.

Romio is not just another app though; it’s a movement to make it possible for all to thrive (not just survive)!

What makes Romio unique?

Unlike other local service marketplace, Romio was built with the principles of Social Capitalism at our core.

In other words, when you and your friends refer and book services through Romio, you not only contribute to your well-being but to the well-being of others as well.

Romio makes this possible by building into its platform the concept of “shared economic prosperity”.

For instance, everyone on the platform can benefit as stakeholders of Romio’s success in the form of stock option like instruments – including you!

Your service can be available for Romio Ambassadors to request as “free services.” You’ll have the option to review the request and assess the Ambassador’s profile and social media presence before deciding whether to accept the request.
