GMIC Bangalore 2015 kicked off on Thursday exploring aspects of the mobile ecosystem with the theme – ‘Mobile Everything – Connecting Innovation’.
After a successful debut in India in 2014, the Global Mobile Internet Conference (GMIC) was back in Bangalore this week with the theme ‘Mobile Everything – Connecting Innovation.’ Keynote sessions, panel discussions, a startup competition and an exhibition area covered everything from messaging and apps to healthcare and hyper-local commerce – and there was even a rock band right next to the stage.
In the first of two photo essays, we feature Indian and Chinese digital players at GMIC Bangalore. The Chinese companies were from the ‘third wave’ (eg. Baidu) and ‘fourth wave’ (eg. APUS) of digital entrepreneurs in China, as described by analyst Edward Tse in his most recent book, ‘China’s Disruptors’.
