I've been following their work for several years and it's amazing how much they have grown in a short span of time. This step for me is a chance to build a truly future-facing ecosystem and I am glad to have complete support in doing that. I look forward to taking things to the next level with them."
Raj Kamble, founder and COO, Famous Innovations, added, "I couldn't have asked for a more versatile leader and creative team. Melvin's greatest strength is being able to go beyond traditional ideas and seamlessly integrate technology, new media, music, filmmaking, etc. with great consumer insights.
