Siddhant More says that MOM began as a harmless, fun idea that aimed at sharing the team’s love for marketing and advertising.

Fast forward to a year later, the Facebook Page started gaining traction purely because of the fun-filled content.  The growth of Mad Over Marketing as an organization is full of ups and downs. 

But the efforts, research, and strategy of the firm paid off when the founder, Siddhant More was listed in the Forbes 30 under 30 list. Today, MOM is on a mission to educate and engage the masses with entertaining, yet, value-driven content.
