On the last Tuesday of every month, a woman stands on stage in front of a seated audience of 200, comprising angel investors, VCs, entrepreneurs and future entrepreneurs (university students). CalcuttaRank CEO Meryl Ko presents the month’s app market trend insights in just five minutes. Her analysis covers 38 country’s top traffic-generating apps on Android and iOS, over areas from messaging apps and gaming apps, free games and paid games. Those attending find out which new app has enthralled the market, and which app has been maintaining its momentum for several months. This is a scene you can see if you attend a GoVenture Forum in Korea. (Though remember: the talks are all in Korean). Among the frequent participants, Ko is well known for her friendly smile and question, “Can I look at the menu on your phone for a minute?”
