ImaHima - ƒvƒŒƒX - 2001.03

Ironically it was not a local who launched the hot new technology, but a 28-year-old Indian, Neeraj Jhanji. The multi-lingual Jhanji, fluent in English, Hindi and Japanese, holds an undergraduate degree in electrical engineering from the University of Delhi and won a Fujitsu Asia-Pacific MBA scholarship.

Before hitting the entrepreneurial trail, Jhanji worked in technical and consulting roles for Siemens and Unisys and was a senior consultant in e-commerce strategy for Andersen Consulting in Tokyo. Together with his partner and vice president of technology and operations, Yoshiatsu Kitagawa, Jhanji has big plans for his fledgling business.
...
Jhanji is planning to launch an even more user-friendly version of ImaHima 2 this April and he will be backed up by the installation of new technology architecture capable of handling the higher levels of traffic the company expects.
...
JHANJI: We started looking seriously at funding from May and closed in December.
...
JHANJI: Actually, it was a conscious choice on our part.
...
JHANJI: The strong part of what we're doing is the concept rather than the technology.
...
JHANJI: Location-based advertising is very new to everyone in this market.
...
JHANJI: When I was finally ready to show ImaHima to the world, I called DoCoMo right away and said: "I have a product that will make you money."
AB: Were they excited
JHANJI: They loved it!
...
JHANJI: I put ImaHima up on the web in December 1999 and Yoshiatsu came in March of this year. I'd known him for five years from my first days at Andersen when I was just an intern.
He has a lot of technical expertise to bring to the equation and a background in project management, which is essential. I'm not a hard-core developer anymore, having him there gave me the freedom to concentrate on growing the business.
AB: And is it growing?
JHANJI: There are doors opening up for ImaHima outside of Japan.

Neeraj Jhanji (RI), aged 29, first conceived the need for location-based mobile group messaging services in March '99. Before founding ImaHima in December 1999, Neeraj worked as a senior consultant in e-commerce strategy for Accenture in Tokyo, prior to which he was the Fujitsu Asia-Pacific Scholarship recipient for the MBA program conducted jointly by University of Hawaii, JAIMS and Hitotsubashi University. He previously worked in technical and consulting roles for Siemens and Unisys. He holds an undergraduate degree in Electrical Engineering from the University of Delhi and is fluent in English, Hindi and Japanese.


ImaHima, Inc. » About us

www.imahima.com [cached]

Neeraj Jhanji was walking to a neighborhood train station in Tokyo in 1999 when he wondered if any of his friends were nearby. He looked at his mobile phone and thought "the phone knows where I am, it knows where my friends are, so why doesn't it tell me?". In that serendipitous moment, Neeraj's life was changed. He immediately built and launched "imaHima", a revolutionary mobile service that allowed users to share their location and status with their friends.
