What Motivated us to startup?
Lemma is the brainchild of our founder Gulab Patil who was intrigued by the installations of digital billboards in the city of Pune. He then went on to understand how these systems work & identified there was a huge gap in the way DOOH media functioned. This triggered the idea of creating a platform that would transform digital out of home media into mainstream digital. Gulab saw that with smart cities’ mission & other infrastructural development the DOOH industry in India was only going to get bigger.
Currently, we are
Our current team strength is 35 members handling tech, sales, operations, business development, brand solutions & marketing. The company started with 4 founding members in mid-2017 and has been growing since.
We’ve started to manage campaigns and inventory partners outside of India. Our new markets include Indonesia Malaysia, Singapore, NZ & Qatar.
Our Biggest Challenge is

DOOH can be utilized as an effective medium within the digital media spectrum. In India, DOOH contributes only to 3% of the overall OOH spends, which is very little in comparison to the global average of 39%. The challenge as we see it is to scale this business & garner widespread acceptance by gaining advertiser confidence through our platform.
We want to dominate the world by
Our vision is to create a platform that eliminates the divide across devices within the digital ecosystem. Lemma, in the long run, intends to transform into a platform that would facilitate the programmatic buying of all digital mediums like mobile, web & digital signage from a single source.
The Industry as we foresee
With the smart cities’ initiative in India and several other infrastructural developments across the country, DOOH would serve as a crucial medium of communication. The number of digital signages in India has grown 5X in the last 3 years and this number is only going to surge further. We intend to work with everyone in the industry, publishers, and advertisers alike & ride on the wave stimulated by this explosive growth.
