With more than 12 years of experience and driven by the entrepreneurial spirit with complete awareness of the niche market that mobile devices have carved for themselves today, Vijay jointly set up Mobi2Fun Studios in Bangalore where he was able to implement his terrific technical understanding of handsets and operational platforms. Having noted the keen interest in electronic games among the younger generation, Vijay conceptualized a perfect avenue to mould his creativity and technical specialties to establish a rampant market for mobile games in a novel way.
