About

Our Vision

Micello was founded by Ankit Agarwal in 2008, with the vision of providing people with relevant and timely information — wherever they happen to be. While location-based services are currently relegated to “outdoor” maps, Micello is opening the “indoor” world in a similar way. Our passion is making really useful and accurate indoor maps of your favorite places (think malls, museums, college campuses, businesses and airports) and getting them into the hands of as many people as possible. 

Micello received seed funding in late 2008. Since launching publicly in September 2009 at the DEMOfall 2009 conference in San Diego, Micello has  mapped thousands of locations globally. We’ve been featured in the New York Times, VentureBeat, ReadWriteWeb, and TechCrunch — to name a few — and have won numerous awards.

If you’re as excited as we are about the transformative potential of indoor maps and location-based services and marketing, we’d love to talk to you! Check out our jobs page, drop us a line, and let us know how you can contribute.

Why “Micello”?

Traditionally made of wood and hand carved, the cello is a beautiful bowed string instrument and is believed to be the closest sounding instrument to the human voice. It’s a work of art.

We’re creating indoor maps and a mobile application, “Micello Maps”, that resonate with your lifestyle. Wherever you go, we envision your destination to be accessible as a Micello community, so you always have the latest information in the palm of your hand. We want to provide you the information in a compelling, clean way, so smooth and natural that you wonder how you ever lived without it. We hope that our maps too, are a work of art.
