Press Trust of India  |  Coimbatore 

Bengaluru-based startup Gyanmatrix (GMX) is in talks with universities and colleges, particularly in Coimbatore region, to set up 'centre of excellence', a top company official said today. The startup is negotiating with the city based Sri Ramakrishna Engineering College and Karpagam College, to train students as it aims to make 'real software engineers' when they complete the one-year course being offered to them, Gyanmatrix MD Rajan Parasuraman said. The company is into creating Enterprise mobile Apps, technological incubation, enterprise web solutions, analytical services and infra operations, Rajan said. Being a technology incubator, Gyanmatrix do not want to be just another servicing company in the crowd, but want to take full responsibility of incubating the clients, rather partners, and translate dream ideas into real world products, he said. The company, which started with five members in 2015, is now having strength of 120 plus and it expects growing to 200 plus by the end of 2016, he said. GyanMatrix has also partnered with UK, publisher of some of the most read brands including Britain's newspaper The Sun and The Times, to build a new technology centre of excellence for its word-class products. The GyanMatrix office at the Electronic City will open tomorrow and work collaboratively with UK to deliver the best products and platforms developed by highly skilled teams. Teams in Bangalore and London will work together on UK's apps and live products with content spanning entertainment, sport, current affairs and world news, he said. "This is a proud moment for us to work with UK," Rajan said, adding that GMX is one of the fastest growing startups with a proven record in delivering quality products for some of India and the UK's biggest media companies. On the company's new app Loany, Rajan said about 3,500 people have downloaded it and Rs 200 crore worth transactions have taken place.
