SlideShare co-founder Amit Ranjan quits

Amit Ranjan

SlideShare co-founder Amit Ranjan has quit the company, about two and half years after LinkedIn acquired SlideShare, thereby marking the exit of the entire SlideShare founding team from the company. SlideShare’s other co-founder Rashmi Sinha had left in May last year while Jon Boutelle had quit the company in August last year.

Ranjan said that following his exit, SlideShare is getting consolidated into its San Francisco office, however he noted that the company is still in “great shape”and is now an integral part of LinkedIn. He also claimed that it witnessed the highest traffic numbers ever in November 2014.

While Ranjan hasn’t disclosed what he plans to do next, an Economic Times report from last month had suggested that he will be leading a government project that intends to open up all its technology systems to build government apps that can be deployed across the country. It also added that Ranjan will be reporting to the Joint secretary (eGov) Rajinder Kumar.

Note that the Department of Electronics and Information Technology (DeitY) had earlier launched a mobile governance app store called “Mobile Sevak” in December 2013, a few months after it launched the e-governance web app store in May 2013. This mobile app store was expected to enable citizens access various government services on their mobile phones. At launch, it claimed to host around 240 mobile applications.
