The Vision

Our Story

After more than a decade serving the Western New York community with their marketing and print service needs, our founder Sharique Ansari quickly saw the need and demand for more versatile offerings. Businesses will always need print, signage, corporate merchandising and other forms of traditional marketing, but there is also a significant demand for digital solutions like social media management, email marketing and search engine optimization. The Chakra team widened to incorporate these realities, and in 2018, HIVE was launched.
Sharique saw the greatest need among small businesses and nonprofits in the Buffalo area, most of which with very few resources. It was these clients he was most passionate about helping and through the HIVE service, he was able to analyze their needs and help them form a strategic marketing plan.
