Want to see your future, just see your mobile. This is what I realized after visiting the Start Up city, a forum for start-ups to showcase their technology, held in NIMHANS, Bangalore on 6th June 2009.
By a naked eye estimate, there were around 100 start-up companies showcasing their technology and ideas they are working upon. But first hats-off to NIMHANS. I was surprised to see that a government college can have such an impressive infrastructure to hold such events. More than the scale, it was neatness and cleanliness a government college auditorium, which surprised me. I think this is one of the best example, what wonders a good un-corrupt administration can do.
Coming back to the theme, it was first kind for me. For me one take-away, Mobile is future. Around 30-50% start-ups are one way or other related to mobile services. Starting from Internet, payment, downloading, reading e-books, selling and buying, audio-video conferencing, movie watching, reading magazines, gaming, office work, photography and videography, presentation, any edition, data storage, banking, stock markets, messaging, GPS, writing & reading in any language of world…and any service one can think of, will be done from mobile.
Few companies shaping the future: Panini, MyMob, Jio Bindaas, Map My India, OnMobile etc.
I just can’t wait to see the FUTURE..;-)
