New York based Mobile Universal offers iPhone, Android and HTML5 apps for businesses, allows anyone to start app company via its reseller program
Common passion and vision bring people together to build a startup. And this becomes more relevant with Mobile Universal a tech startup started by co-founders Ankesh Arora and Zia Siddiqui while they were students at a university in New York. Coming from two different countries, Ankesh Arora from India, and Zia Siddiqui from Pakistan, did not stop them from collaborating, and achieving their entrepreneurial dreams.
Mobile Universal is a New York based startup, which provides iPhone, Android and HTML5 apps for businesses such as restaurants, boutiques, schools, hospitals, etc. In addition to providing mobile presence to businesses, Mobile Universal allows entrepreneurs to start their own mobile app company via its reseller program. By using Mobile Universal’s platform anyone can start their app company with no technical or software skills required. “This is a dramatic shift for an industry where businesses used to spend thousands of dollars and hire developers to build an app. Now, here we are, putting that power in the hands of the common man,” said Arora.
At present, Mobile Universal is promoting entrepreneurship in India and Pakistan by helping aspiring entrepreneurs create their own mobile app companies. Unlike most of the startups, Mobile Universal has been profitable from the beginning. “Usually, startups look for instant growth and scaling in order to seek venture capital. So, they aim to hit a million or so customers as soon as possible. At Mobile Universal, in addition to getting customers, our focus has also been on building mobile app companies (resellers) under our system,” added Zia. Mobile Universal currently has client base in United States, Europe and South America.
Launched in 2011 Mobile Universal aims to create more reseller in India and Pakistan. The duo have started Mobile Universal in early 20’s and suggest budding entrepreneurs to start early. “We would say, start out early. Don’t wait. You know why? When you are in your 20′s, you’re ignorant and ambitious. Ignorance works in your favor as you are totally clueless and have no idea how hard it is to start your own company,” concluded Arora.
