Lingareddy addressing the launch said, “We’re not a restaurant or business place app. We’re not even about devices or announcing a Re 1 phone. We are a company driven by emphasis on design and technology. Even though, we are based in India, we have ambitions to reach out to the world. We missed the PCs and mobile phone revolutions, but we think IoT is where we can establish an Indian company with a global presence.”

An Indian company going global is a matter of pride, and i wanted to be a part of it. It would be a dream come true to see Americans carrying this phone. That’s something we aspire to be,” Speaking as an Investor and Brand Ambassador Sachin Tendulkar said at the launch event.
