Sociomantic Mumbai is located in the heart of the city that never sleeps. Mumbai, an alpha world city and the most populous metropolitan area in India, is a melting pot of many communities and cultures that mirrors Sociomantic’s own global diversity. As the home of Bollywood, Mumbai is the second largest film-producing state in the world by revenue and one that is older than Hollywood. It is also home to Dhobi Ghat (the world’s largest open-air Laundromat) and Dharavi Asia’s largest slum that is also host to informal textile, pottery and leather export industry that produces an annual turnover of over US $500 million.
Amidst the hustle and bustle of the city are the “dabbahwallahs”—a century-old human delivery system that is recognized as one of the best-managed supply chains in the world. Forbes magazine awarded the manpower-based system its highest rating, Sigma Six—a rating shared with corporate giants like General Electric and Motorola, signifying less than one error per one million transactions. Sociomantic’s aim is to match these stellar service rates to help brands forge into the digital era with personalized ads powered by smart data that are tailor-made for each and every customer.

Island Hopping – Nicknamed the “city of seven islands,” Mumbai (formerly known as Bombay) is an archipelago of seven islands that over time connected to form the current city that it is. By 1845, the islands were physically merged through multiple land reclamation projects that resulted in the formation of Greater Bombay—the nation’s current financial, commercial and entertainment capital.
Get Groovy – The Mumbai office progresses through the day with a cornucopia of beats. Indie, Alternative and Punk Rock are the norm of the day, interspersed with an eclectic mix of Electro and Instrumental Fusion.
