Company Summary

In life we often try so hard to be the best person we can be without any acknowledgement from others as to whether they realize our efforts or understand who we are. Pegmi launched an app which allows people them to anonymously peg each other with character traits and defining interests. Pegs collect in a user’s Pegmi profile and create a personality portrait. The app is focused on self discovery and bringing happiness to others.
