MOX, the mobile only accelerator that propels mobile app startups into the world’s emerging markets, has graduated its seventh batch on August 27.
With startups from India, Hong Kong, Thailand and Indonesia, the cohort includes already profitable global players and seed-stage startups with sizable user bases in their home countries. Demo Day will take place on August 27 in Taipei and August 30 in Singapore, and both events will be streaming live.
“The first billion internet users accessed the Internet using their PCs, but the next four billion users — Southeast Asia, Eastern Europe and South America — are mobile-only," said William Bao Bean Managing Director of MOX and General Partner of SOSV. "Hundreds of millions of users are getting on the Internet with smartphones."
"MOX helps startups from around the world win in India and Indonesia, South East Asia and South Asia through our accelerator focused on localization, monetization and free user acquisition,” he added.
By partnering with promotion partners such as mobile operators in each country, MOX enables the strongest mobile startups from around the world expand into new markets without spending money on customer acquisition.
