It was a great event. Rakesh Sidana was associated with MapmyIndia in the early days of Listening to Rakesh Verma Sir after a long time is a great experience to know their struggle to stay focused even when there are elephants in the competition 🙂 and maintaining corporate governance and true purpose to yourself. Great lesson for every startup at the event.

50 million searches across multiple languages, and powering over 2.5 billion kms of directions every single day on Maps. Everybody should start using Indian Maps by MapMyIndia.
