About Mayank Mehta
After graduating as an engineer from McGill in 2004, I founded and sold a home automation company in Montreal called Ambient Technologies. In 2006 I had the great fortune of connecting with my co-founders and starting Cooliris with the simple mantra of: "Think beyond the browser". We believe that new and better ways of browsing, organizing, and flexibly sharing rich-media content can be developed, using both the full power of the hardware and new software concepts that make it easier to communicate around, discover, and monetize content. Cooliris is venture-backed by Kleiner Perkins and is based out of Palo Alto, California.
