Micello Blog: Indoor Cartography
Stay in touch with Micello by following our blog as we cover a wide range of cartography and company topics.
Today, Micello celebrated our summer interns before they head back to school. Ashwin and Rohan have spent their summer learning and experimenting at the Micello office, and today we treated them to a picnic lunch in honor of their last day (as interns) at Micello. We always grow fond of our interns, but these summer interns have been a breath of fresh air around the office.
We are so excited to introduce you to our new space and the new faces at Micello's new office in Ahmedabad, India. Recently, our team of map makers transitioned to a much larger, “state of the art” working space, and welcomed new team members. Micello is dedicated to expanding our map coverage worldwide, and that means more space and more people!
The construction of the space started with a blank canvas. Once walls were torn down and we added a little paint, the space was furnished with all of the essential map making needs and viola, Micello's Ahmedabad (Abad) office is open for business. This new space features floor to ceiling windows, a friendly open work environment (and of course, air conditioning).
Micello's Ahmedabad office is where the magic happens. Commonly referred to as our "map factory", the Ahmedabad office is home to over 40 Micello employees consisting of Map Designers, Team Leaders, Administrative Professionals, Engineers, and we are growing quickly! Let’s meet some of the new faces!
Esha Juneja is the HR Manager and Ishita Shah is the Office Manager for Micello, India. These two ladies keep the office running smoothly. Showcasing their skills, experience and savvy; they are the back bone of day-to-day operations. Their efforts in office organization, scheduling and overall team management make the office function on a daily basis.
Surendra Deora and Kushboo Shah are Team Leaders for the Map Ops team at Micello, India. Team Leaders share their knowledge and skills as well as lead the team of map designers to make maps.

Back to school has never been so exciting! Last week, Micello CEO Ankit Agarwal, had the opportunity to speak at Stanford. Micello was invited by Professor Tom Kosnik to hold a lecture and discussion for two sessions of the E145 class.
Class started with a music video to get everyone in the groove... shouldn't all classes begin this way?
A few weeks prior to this discussion, the students were given a case study featuring all things Micello. The class was divided into teams of mock companies that worked together to form their start-up. Each group worked together, with the Micello case study to determine what choices they would make given the same scenerio Ankit faced while building his start-up Micello, from day one. The outcome was phenomenal! Everyone was on the edge of their seat waiting to find out if they had made the same decisions as Ankit.
