Small wonders Brothers aged 10 & 12 launch mobile app firm registering 10,000 downloads
Many might say it’s no child’s play. But two brothers, still in school, have launched their very own mobile applications firm. Sanjay Kumaran is a CEO at just 10 years of age, while his 12-year-old brother, Shravan, is the president of the company Go Dimensions.
Floated last December, the firm has already made rapid strides. Within two months of its launch, the first product – Catch me Cop, a mobile application – was on display at Apple’s App Store. And in the next two weeks, there were some 2,000 downloads! No wonder that it drew the attention of cnet.com, the popular website that comes out with lists of popular apps.
Kumaran, however, ensures that his wards do not lose interest in studies. ‘Studies are very important. They should study at least an hour a day,’ he said. He also admitted some companies had evinced interest in tying up with Go Dimension. Prodded about their future plans, the brothers said they have set their sights on developing tools for education with appropriate applications. ‘Our aim is to bring accessibility and affordability for all,’ CEO Sanjay explained. What will they do with all the money they will earn? Pat came the reply: ‘Invest it to help the poor.’
