US venture capitalist to invest in local app development

THURSDAY, 12 FEBRUARY 2015 AUTHOR / SOURCE: FAISAL MAHMUD E-mailPrintPDF
To take the country's mobile app development into the fast lane, Invictus US Corporation, a New York based venture capitalist firm is going to organise an app development competition titled 'Innovation Next Generatoin' with prize money of $25,000 in Bangladesh. At the ongoing 'Digital World 2015', the 'Innovation next Generation' has established a booth where it is disseminating information about the competition.
Talking with The Independent, John Messer, president of Invictus US Corporation, said they have created the competition to bring all the mobile app developers of the country to submit the concept or idea of their apps to their corporation.
“We are going to select few winners from those idea or concept list. Then we will finance them to develop their apps and to bring those to the market”, said Messer.
Messer said, in the Digital World, he has observed the technological innovations and advancements going on in the country. All the departments and the ministries of the governments have their stalls in the digital world and they are showcasing their contribution towards achieving the vision of digital Bangladesh, he said. “I think this is fantastic. This probably is the best time to invest in Bangladesh's technological sector”.
When asked what type of apps the competition will prefer, the US based venture capitalist said they want to help the young entrepreneurs in the country and want to take their concepts into the market. “So if we see and app idea which can change certain existing concepts in the market and make it better, we will go for it”.
“It can be the next angry bird or the next whatsapp”.
Messer said US is the biggest mobile app buyer in the world and Bangladesh is one of the large suppliers of those apps. Many US companies are suing customized apps for their office usage which are being developed in Bangladesh.
“The internet has changed everything that we do. You now can hire talented developers at any places in the world to develop your products. As businessmen, we obviously wanted best output with the lowest investment, of course without compromising the quality. Bangladeshi developers perfectly fit into that profile”.
He said, for this South Asian region, the sky is the limit in future. “This region represents 23 per cent population of the whole world but in mobile app world, it represents only 7 per cent. It has the immense opportunity to grow”.
Mohammad Mahdee-Uz-Zaman, director of Mobioapp, country's leading mobile app developer who facilitated the competition with the US venture capitalist firm, told The Independent that this is just a small step towards achieving a big goal.
Mobile apps are among the fastest growing sectors in the software industry and it alone generated at least one third of the total revenue earned by the software sector in the past year in the whole world.
The situation in Bangladesh is no different, he said. Observing the mobile app boom, many software companies here have started developing apps. Especially the freelancers who have their accounts in popular online bidding websites like 'odesk' and 'elance', he added.
“Internet penetration across the globe has been increasing in geometric manner because of mobile internet. So, mobile app is the future. Competition like this will only provide the country's tech savvy youth the much needed impetus to move forward”, said Zaman.
