Townsquared wasn’t just built for small businesses, it was built at a small business—specifically, over fresh pasta and the famous meatballs from Pasta Gina. Townsquared was originally powered by Gina’s homemade food (possibly a few cannolis), and our founders, Ro Prakash and Nipul Patel, regaled Gina and her husband, Gene, with their dream of helping small businesses. They liked the idea so much, Pasta Gina was one of our first investors. Gene and Gina helped make Townsquared a reality because they believed, like we do, that small businesses benefit from strong communities. We’re honored by their faith in us (even though Ro and Nipul still aren't allowed to make the cannoli filling).
Our mission is simple: to help small businesses succeed through easy access to the knowledge they need.
All of us at Townsquared are endlessly inspired by the energy and dedication of individuals working to realize the dream of running a successful business. It’s why we do what we do: provide a free online platform for local businesses to succeed together.
Our values rest on one principle: We’re stronger, together.

We know that gratitude allows us to be positive during the good days—and the not-so-good days.
