At UnPluggd, we aim to bring you speakers who can inspire you to think big and push you to go beyond the obvious.
Meet Lalitesh Katragadda, cofounder of Google India and the man behind Google map maker.

As of 2005, only 15 percent of the world was mapped.  Lalitesh was the creator of Google Map Maker. Google Map maker empowered people to map what they knew locally and it tripled the world’s digital maps corpus, mapping 2 billion people in 187 countries. The UN and aid agencies have used these user generated maps to assist and rescue millions.

Lalitesh co-founded Google India and was its founding Joint Center Head for two years and retired from Google as Head of India products having invented, led several products including Crowdsourced YouTube Subtitles, Crowdsourced translation corpus, Google Transliteration and Google Finance.

He is now focused on India’s nation building as the founder of Swaja Labs, Indihood, as an architect of Digital India’s Open API and AP Government’s Fiber Grid.

At UnPluggd, Lalitesh will share his insights and experience on building (and importantly, SCALING) products for the Indian market.
