Linute_App On October 1st the Linute App went live on the Apple store, but it’s origin story is Astoria made. Friends Andi Muskaj, Hadi Rashid and Nabeel Alamgir went to high school together at William C. Bryant High School. Although they separated for college, they found themselves back in Astoria.

Linute App They started a conversation and realized that social media was making us lonelier. They wanted to go back to the good old days of meeting up and making memories; and that’s actually what the Linute app does in a nutshell. Their app shows college students and users what’s in and around their campus and community, AND makes it easy to invite friends and meet new people.

Linute_App_Post “Astoria has taught us how to hustle, and we want everyone to know that this is a great place to start a tech startup. Our neighborhood has so many engineers and entrepreneurs…not to mention, the best food in NYC!” says Nabeel Almgir.

The team has grown now. They are in 7 schools, primarily in Baruch, City College and Hunter. They’ve also started raising funds in order to a launch the Android version in the near future.
