A bona fide pioneer of the mobile ecosystem
Dr Ronjon Nag inventor and serial entrepreneur is our prominent guest this week. In part one, Ronjon shares the fascinating start-up journey for his first three mobile technology companies selling out to Motorola and Blackberry. A pioneer of speech recognition and neural networks in the mid 1980’s, to the development of handwriting recognition AI and predictive text, Ronjon’s first company Lexicus was acquired by Motorola in the early 1990’s. His second company Cellmania concentrated on further mobile developments including a mobile search engine and the first App store in 1999, he sold to Blackberry in 2010. A truly gripping listen with more to come next week, in part two.
