A lot of mystery surrounds the life story of Ambarish Mitra, a man the BBC dubbed “the real life slumdog multi-millionaire.” In an interview with the news outlet, Mitra claims that at at the age of around 16, he ran away from home to the slums of Dehli after realising he did not want to follow the traditional Indian career path of becoming a doctor or engineer – a path his parents had envisioned for him.
There have been many conflicting reports about his personal and professional background – but one thing is for sure: he is a significantly influential and disruptive individual within the technology and AI markets. He is the founder of Blippar, an augmented reality firm headquartered in London. Blippar introduced the first augmented-reality digital ad platform and the app lets users look at real world objects with added information in text and graphics through their smartphone cameras.
In March 2015, Blippar became a tech unicorn with a massive valuation of $1 billion.
