Happy Birthday to us! So we have successfully ( or something like that : ) ) navigated 730 days of our existence! Going by the 1000 days business rule we still have about 9 months to go !
So what have we been doing as company ( besides slacking on the blog)? We recently concluded the Tata Indicom in SL campaign which was a major success by virtual world standards. Detailed analysis will be presented soon here.
We have also been steadily working towards building our own virtual worlds platform and moving towards creating focused applications for virtual worlds. I had posted an imaginary conversation highlighting the need for a clearly defined utility for these 3D immersive environments we called ‘Virtual Worlds’. I think that utility or a part of the answer has emerged over the last year in the form of learning , training and collaboration. Indusgeeks is in the early stages of creating its own learning framework and platform using virtual worlds called ‘ Metamersive Learning Spaces‘.
As we forge new partnerships with companies like Servitium and LP + . We hope to add to the pedagogical utility of these virtual worlds and in creating and defining new standards for 3D/2D interactive , immersive learning.
Last year saw us becoming a Sun Advantage Partner and being the only company in India to work with Sun on their Project Wonderland platform. We also tied up with Intel as a part of the Intel Software Partner Program giving us access to Intel labs for testing our software on the latest and older Intel technologies – essential for benchmarking our solutions.
When we started 2 years back – as with most startups- it was with some ideas on what might pan out. As with most startups.. those ideas didn’t quite work out the way we thought they would . However, we are here in the middle of a full blown depression recession and working on a very exciting project that we can’t talk about yet.
Personally it has been a fascinating journey for me. To see the core team grow from college pass outs to able professionals capable of handling stressful deadlines and tough times. We have grown from 3 to 14 people and grown our revenue to very respectable levels.
2009 will be a year to grow and change as a company as the Geeks grow up! However, what will not change is our commitment to enjoy our work and not take ourselves too seriously!
Sing us a B’day song will you
