Almost a year ago, six young Computer Science graduates in Lahore ventured
on an ambitious plan to build the next generation instant messenger. With
little money, no office and no prior experience of starting a company, most
people scoffed at their plans of starting a company rather than working for
a "respectable" software house. The team worked on low salaries, inhabited a
small room on top of a garage in Lahore, bought 6 second-hand computers and
invested in a Carrom board to setup their "office".
One year on, BumpIn.com http://www.bumpin.com/ has emerged as a major player in the web 2.0 instant
messenger market, evaluated at $600 Million. The company was hailed as a
KillerStartup in Nov'07. In Dec'07, we were tipped to become the market
leaders for the "interactive Web". In Jan'08, BumpIn.com was selected to
provide online chat to a major social networking service.
