Why Mobile? Why India? Why Now?
Why Mobile? We’ve been mobile road warriors since college.
Tomk – Stanford in 1981 – Osborne, then Compaq
Mohit – College of Engineering Pune in 2005 – Compaq
From “Suitcases” to notebooks to Treos and Blackberries to the i-Phone…
Why India? Because in the mobile world, India is no longer an “emerging market” – It has momentum that is impacting the globe.
Why Now? An army of Global Entrepreneurial Leaders Appeared.
