Neeraj Jhanji | Vice President
Neeraj Jhanji founded ImaHima, the world's first mobile social network in Tokyo in 1999. Mr. Jhanji's pioneering patents on mobile check-in, status updates and location-based advertising were acquired by Facebook in 2013. Neeraj has lived and worked in New Delhi, Tokyo, Honolulu, Singapore, Stockholm, Vancouver, Palo Alto and speaks Hindi, Japanese, English and basic Swedish. Prior to ImaHima, Neeraj worked for Accenture in Tokyo. He holds a Japan-focused MBA from University of Hawaii (sole Indian recipient of Fujitsu Asia-Pacific Scholarship, 1995) and a BS in Electrical Engineering from Delhi College of Engineering (1993). Mr. Jhanji contributes his business expertise toward guiding international development, intellectual property issues and corporate operations for NPC.

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.
