Have you ever wondered - It would be great, in a heavy traffic, if I could get personalized news catering to my interests in 45 seconds of soundbytes in my preferred language? Is there any app that I can download on my smartphone?
Don't sweat, now you have RaiyoApp where all latest news, views and updates are all created, managed and rated by users. In the App you can get the top news and updates without the need to swipe, scroll or flip. Just plug it and play it. You can download the app on Google Play by clicking here
The following story is about founder of RadiyoApp , Mr Akshat Anil Ratanpal
Q. Mr Akshat Anil Ratanpal, please tell us about yourself and your journey towards developing the app - RadiyoApp?
I, as the founder of RadiyoApp, am working towards driving the vision to reality -where we can empower people and their voices. We are working on creating a platform that will truly democratize how news is created and is shared with people in the language of their choice.
Even if someone cannot really type, they know how to speak and Radiyoapp is that enabler for them to create and share audio content in the language of their choice.
I am an engineering graduate with a post graduate in Information Security from University of Surrey and have more than 3 years of work experience in Companies like KPMG, EY, Axis Risk Consulting and as consultant at companies like HSBC, JP Morgan and Morgan Stanley. I love Cricket and Footbal and I love Manchester United.
"We are based in Mumbai with one founder, two interns and technology support partner. There wasn't a single Eureka moment, in fact it was culmination of experiences that lead us to creating Radiyoapp.
a) While driving an Uber from my workplace to home, I had a profound conversation with the driver who could speak 5 languages but couldn't type on Whatsapp
b) Watching an old guy looking onto his co-passengers phone just to read the marathi news that the person was reading
c) How my mom could continue doing her morning chores with either the Radio on or the TV and getting all her morning news just be listening.
d) My sister telling me that she was so tired that she hoped she had someone to tell her the news.
e) How the car radio would have all my co-passenger in the office cab gripped onto the horror story playing on the radio"

We primarily use Facebook for our marketing and then its SMS, Email and Twitter. All the marketing is done in-house. However, the current focus is primarily on product development.
We are looking for MBA Interns to assist us for marketing and business development and creating strategies to target institutes to become our customers.
Best way to reach me is over email as I do not really answer unknown numbers.
