I have been participating in Mobile Monday Bangalore for an year and half now. What started as a few geeks in a cafeteria event is currently a huge community commanding respect from everyone. Today, speakers from all over the world vie to be part of of the community !
But that’s not what I call success, there are plenty of such “eco-systems” currently mushrooming in India.
What I like the most about Momo Bangalore is that it has still managed to retain it’s original form as a “By Entrepreneurs for entrepreneurs” organization.
Lot of the credit for that is due to the organizers. They have remained the very friendly and easily approachable face of Momo Bangalore throughout all it’s transitions.
Let me just talk about ourselves. We at Mobisy started as just another start-up with an idea around a year back.
Getting any attention or help in any other “eco-system” was proving a tough task. Momo Bangalore acted like a true “Mentor” to us. Right from finding information regarding standard start-up processes to getting a demo arranged, networking with VCs, Partners, Customers… We were offered help at every single step. All that with a smile and no cost ! How many organizations can claim to provide such a level of altruistic service to budding start-ups in India?
In my personal opinion, we need many such organizations to spur on real innovations here.
May the ‘Momo Bangalore’ spirit live on.

I was actually quite surprised to see the number of entrepreneurs in Delhi during one of our meets for Proto.in. I have been asking the guys to see if they could meet regularly, but I think someone needs to put some effort on that and lead that. One of the things that I am hoping will happen with Proto.in happening in Delhi is that, the team which is on the ground will eventually start meeting and will grow what is to happen there.
But yep, drop me a mail, would love to connect you to those guys.
Glad to know about such a wonderful meeting!
I just would like to know, do you know about any other meetings of such kinds, which are held in Delhi.
And if you tell me, or recommend me, any good web sites, or places, where I can discuss with the passionate Entrepreneurs about… Everything!
While most of the local community knows but the rest of the world does’nt, credit of MoMo Blr goes to S R Raja & Keshav as well.
The challenge in front of MoMo Blr (or for any community for that matter) now is how does it scale and do it well. Suggestions welcome !
Lalit, I think the Bangalore MoMo is most probably the first and only fully functional MoMo in the country and as you rightly pointed out, the credits go to Rajiv and Rajan, and the rest of the gang.
Kudos to them!
glad that we are useful for someone at least 🙂
