MOMO @ IIM Bangalore 30th Aug 208

It was good that the event was organized on Saturday so that we workaholic’s (at least I love to be called though I am not) can also attend. It took me 15min drive to reach IIMB on my 2stroke bike. There is some thing about IIM’s that makes your body shiver. I can not define it much but there are people who have  defined it in a better way, but there is something you can smell it, you can feel it,the building the garden. Well, enough of IIM back to MOMO, the event was organized in IIMB auditorium. I guess, there were some 40 members when i entered. First, session was keynote: Challenges and opportunities in Indian mobile VAS followed by discussion on VAS.

VAS discussion panelist were Ramakrishna(rangde.org), Abhishek Sinha(EKO india financial Services, V Sasikumar(ekgaon technologies), Raj Raghvan (classifEye), Navin Thangaiah(mChek), Moderator – Ashish Gupta(Helion Ventures).

Mr. Abhishek Sinha of EKO India Financial Services impressed me with his product where in he targeted people at the bottom of the pyramid by providing them a simple procedure for debiting their account irrespective of the phone.

After first session, there was Lunch&Networking session. Lunch was really very good including palak paneer, salad followed by carrot halwa and ice-cream.

Well, i was more interested in the second session “Mobile Marketing & Mobile Advertising” as my company is into Mobile advertising and my CEO was also present there. J

The panelist were Zubair Jandali (AdMob), Santosh Navlani(mKhoj), Debraj Tripathy(OnMobile), Karthee Madaswamy(Qualcomm ventures) , Narsimha Suresh(Telibrahma Convergent) Moderator – Swami Krishna(Sasken).

Basically, they were discussing on how to stuff in some more ad and bombard it on user.

The other two sessions were “Mobile Web” & “Telecom Platform Opportunities” which unfortunately I could not attend as I had to shift my stuffs from CV raman nagar to BTM.

I returned home by 3pm just before rain started and it rained continuously till 7pm. Shit man ! why I came back. All in all it was a great experience and ya i met @Bhuvan  @Twitter.
