StartUp Beat Inspiring Interview with Suren Ramasubbu

MOBICIPNEWS on August 10, 2011

We are happy to share that StartUpBeat.com featured an inspiring interview with Suren Ramasubbu, titled: Startup Narratives: Suren Ramasubbu, founder and CEO of Mobicip.com.  You can read the full interview here: http://startupbeat.com/sub/2011/08/startup_narratives_suren_ramasubbu_id2452.html and you can also find it on the Mobicip press page.

Our favorite Q and A from the interview was the following:
SUB: What prompted you to start Mobicip in the first place?
Ramasubbu: I still remember that moment vividly. I was watching some kids walk across the street at a traffic light. These middle schoolers were carrying huge backpacks. It was 2005. I felt the backpacks were an anachronism, a throwback to an older era in education and how children learn. I remember feeling strongly that this was going to change. And I wanted to be a part of that change in education, if and when it happens. It was a gut feeling, an intuition, and it was validated at the Mobile 2011 Conference. There is significant change happening today in K-12 education, and it has been labeled “mobile learning”.

From StartUp Beat: "Editor’s Note: This is a new Q&A series from StartUp Beat that features entrepreneurs who have successfully guided their startups (or multiple startups) to maturity.
