The Zoomingo Story
Zoomingo was co-founded by Krishnan Seshadrinathan and Shirish Nadkarni, who also co-founded Livemocha, the world’s largest language learning website with more than 10 million users. Shirish also founded mobile email pioneer TeamOn, which was acquired by RIM in 2002.
Shirish left Livemocha in 2011 and had the opportunity to spend a lot of time with his wife – an avid shopper. The experience of going from one store to another in the mall to find interesting things on sale quickly became tedious. Often, his wife might find an item, but not buy it because she wasn’t sure if there was something similar that was cheaper in another store. As a self-described “typical male shopper,” Shirish found the process time-consuming and frustrating, and searched for an app to help. Price comparison apps weren’t always reliable, and retailer mobile apps were geared to making online purchases. There had to be a better way – and the idea of Zoomingo was born.
