Kochi: MobME Wireless, India’s first telecom campus startup, completes a decade of its launch this month, amid plans to ramp up its operations through a string of expansion initiatives to cater to the needs of customers in South Asia, Middle East, Africa and the United States.

MobME, which initially focused on providing mobility and related solutions to telecom operators, has expanded its range of technology to cater to needs of clients in e-commerce, airlines, BFSI and retail sectors, through its core verticals.

“As part of our expansion plans, the company has already initiated discussions with customers in the US, the Middle East, South Asia and Africa,” said Sathya Kalyanasundaram, CEO, MobME.

“As we mark a decade of our existence, we are making a strategic shift into a technology company with innovative analytics and banking product portfolios,” he added.

In order to expand its product portfolio, the company has also decided to consider inorganic growth opportunities such as acquisitions or similar transactions.

MobME was founded in 2006 by three enterprising engineering students – Sanjay Vijaykumar, Sony Joy and Vivek Francis, while still pursuing their engineering. The team initially started with solutions for the telecom sector and later cemented its relationships with other sectors.

The company has carved a niche for itself by creating an array of innovative technology-driven verticals and solutions.

“Most startups tend to fail after a three to four year period. It is hence, a great achievement that we have completed a decade,” said Sanjay Vijayakumar, founder-member of MobME.

“It’s been an amazing ride. We started young…. which was a very helpful factor as a far as innovation and experimenting is concerned but we lacked experience and were a little in doubt about sustaining what we had started. But then again we had a friendly business environment to help us and also ours is a great team… we continue to work together fantastically” said Sony Joy, founder-member of MobME.
