What: Mapunity: Mobile Applications, Social Technology and Social Networking, by Dr. Ashwin Mahesh.
Dr Ashwin Mahesh is Chief Executive Officer and one of the co-founders of Mapunity, incubated at NSRCEL, IIM Bangalore. He is also a co-founder of the public affairs magazine India Together, and a consultant to the Administrative Reforms Commission of the Central government. This year, he is on the visiting faculty at IIM, researching and teaching the re-invention of government through policy and implementation.
In this talk, Ashwin will focus on social technology, its potential to address key problems, and the spin-off commercial advantages of this focus. He will show some of the application spaces for Mapunity technology, discuss the social networking platform the company is building, and a few of the directions in which technology development could go in the future. He will also share some of Mapunity’s experience in creating and growing a startup in the mode of a ‘research lab’ rather than a product or services organisation.
