The MQuiz conducted by MoMo Bangalore saw a great turnout from the quizzing community of Bengalooru. Held at the IIM Bangalore campus auditorium, 37 teams from all the top colleges and corporates of Bengalooru turned up for this battle of Mobilized Minds. A common written prelim round was followed by two entertaining on-stage finals - one for the colleges and one for corporates.
The college round witnessed a very close finish with the winner being decided through a set of tie-breaker questions - BMSCE Bangalore pipped BITS Pilani to the post. In the corporate round, it was domination all the way from the seasoned duo of Tejaswi Udupa and Mitesh Agarwal from Yahoo! and Sun, who comfortably won the quiz.
The audience had great fun too and won loads of prizes. The winners in both tracks took home Nokia 5800 Express Music phones and all finalists won prizes. The prizes were given out by Sanjay Swamy, CEO of MChek.
