Ten two-minute videos will illustrate gooi in a competition commissioned this week in India by mygooi.com, the cloud-based mobile technology brand that is changing the shape of networking around the world, said mygooi founder Jay Namboor.
He and CEO Paul N. Greenwood are in Bangalore working to develop gooination.
At the same time, the gooination Street Team is disruptively networking on its world tour at stops in the Netherlands, Germany, England and France. It will return to the United States for a night of fun and gooikaraoke May 7 before the entrepreneurial and innovation conference known as Big Omaha (Nebraska).
mygooi is headquartered in Chennai, India, and Des Moines, Iowa.
“We’ve already seen first passes of some of the videos, and they’re wonderfully creative, speaking in images that resonate with the people here: motorcycles, mobile communications and being free,” says Greenwood. The competition is among five young independent film producers in Chennai and five in Bangalore.
The best entry will be given the first ever “gooi” for short videos and all entries to be posted on the new gooi YouTube channel.
gooi is about breaking down barriers and thinking outside of the traditional, Greenwood explains. An example of a gooi business is a dental practice that offers massages, pedicures and other spa treatments while you’re waiting for your appointment.
“It’s no longer about teeth,” Greenwood says. “It’s about an experience that you will love; not just like, but love. It’s a transformation. That dental practice gets gooi-points for cool.
“Which companies are breaking boundaries? That’s what we’re looking for and encouraging. That’s what we’re asking gooination: ‘What do you think is gooi? What businesses do you love?’ And we’re asking small and medium businesses, ‘Why are you gooi?’
“Anyone can be gooi. It’s diverse and limitless and the brand networking of today. It’s a destination that’s what you want it to be, where you want it to be.”
Namboor said that, while in Bangalore, mygooi.com has reached an understanding to work with Propaganda India, the Bangalore-based branding firm that established Google and YouTube in India. The agency urges clients to “Think creative before you leap,” adding that, “As a team, we are intrigued by new possibilities.”
Namboor notes, “A company that talks about putting thoughts, ideas, concepts, processes and designs into play to provide an immersive brand experience is already gooi.”
The gooination Street Team is introducing the company’s latest development. In particular, Big Omaha will highlight the upcoming world debut of the Mygooi mobile device platform and feature a gathering of entrepreneurs seeking to promote themselves and their businesses. Festivities take place from 5 to 8 p.m. at the historic 1316 Jones Street near Omaha’s Old Market. The unique business karaoke will feature a live Omaha DJ, a cash bar and complimentary food and drinks, with participants eligible to win prizes including iPads or a promotional video, valued at $10,000, for their business, produced by television producer/director/actor Ed Ellington.

mygooi has posted most of its branded content on Imgur and is hosting a global meme challenge on the Imgur platform that offers the winner a $5,000 travel voucher to any destination in the world. With target markets in Europe, Japan, China, India and the Americas, mygooi will debut its latest mobile platform shortly through the Apple App Store and Google Play.
Bangalore, with a population approaching nine million, is called the Silicon Valley of India. Ranked one of the top ten preferred entrepreneurial locations in the world by the Economic Times, it has attracted a substantial number of Americans who work with the local information technology community. Chennai, formerly known as Madras, is the sixth largest city in India with almost five million people. The New York Times listed it among its 52 places to go in 2014.
