    Founder Chairman, IMImobile

    Vishwanath Alluri (Vish) founded IMImobile in 1999 to capitalise on the emergence of mobile data services and with a vision to harness the intellectual resources of India to develop an IPR centric technology company. Vish's vision is to create an Indian global technology powerhouse that alters the perception of India as a source of lower value added “services” to one in which India moves up the value chain to own its intellectual property.

    Today Vish has envisioned and evolved IMImobile into a leading international player, with a global client portfolio of 96 telecom operators. IMImobile’s services are available to over 1 billion subscribers in over 72 countries.

    IMImobile OPENHOUSE, Vish’s new initiative aims to democratize innovation, convert telecom networks into ‘smart pipes’ and unleash the creative prowess of the developer community to bring a wide range of applications and services to market.
