Jai Ho! Nimbuzz Wins Mobile Marketing Association Smartie Award

Jai Ho Nimbuzz Wins Mobile Marketing Association Smartie AwardJai Ho is a Nepali and Hindi phrase roughly translated as “Let victory prevail.” Popularized by the award-winning film “Slum Dog Millionaire,” it certainly applies to Nimbuzz now.

Nimbuzz, one of the world’s largest digital advertising platforms, was just recognized at The Smarties 2014 as the ‘Enabling Technology Company of the Year on Mobile’ winner. The prominent award was presented by the Mobile Marketing Association, sponsor of the competition.

Nimbuzz’s move to India is making more and more sense.

Originally based in the Netherlands, Nimbuzz was founded in 2006 by Evert Jaap Lugt. In 2012, Nimbuzz moved its headquarters from Rotterdam to New Delhi, India to be up close to the anticipated mobile Internet boom happening there.

The right decision? Sure looks like it.

“According to the latest findings of the Digital Advertising in India Report, the online advertising market in India is projected to grow 30 percent through March, 2015.”

The story was reported in Business Standard online.

Vikas Saxena, CEO, Nimbuzz on the occasion said, “The award re-iterates our dominance in the Mobile Advertising space. Our engagement led marketing solutions have helped brands build the audience connect.”

Nimbuzz’s  application enables users to enjoy free calls, instant messaging, file sharing, and social networking on their mobile device. In addition Nimbuzz offers discounted calling rates to most countries in the world. It is operational across major platforms including Android, iOS, Symbian, Windows Phone, and J2ME, as well as Windows and Mac desktop.
