Founded in 1973 by Sanjay Masrani, the company initially intended to establish itself in the telecommunications sector. By 1983, ten years after their start-up, the company perfected the technology Mascom, becoming a household name with forty-five channels all over India.

After the untimely death of John Hammond in 1997, Masrani purchased the InGen Corporation and began developing Jurassic World, a theme park on the Costa Rican island Isla Nublar.
