CALLING ALL ENTREPRENEURS WITH CROSS-BORDER AMBITION
“MOX is brilliant. It is one of the best programs that I came across. I have seen other founders struggle to get the right benefit in other programs. On the other hand, the MOX team is very hands-on and ready to help all the time. They even help in execution. I could not have found a better partner in the world.”
—Sumit Sinha, Phable

what are your investment terms?

At the same time we invest approximately US$150,000, of which US$45K is the program cost, which we pay on the startup’s behalf to the program.
do you accept only mobile apps?
No. We accept companies serving emerging mobile-first markets such as SE Asia and India. App or no app.
where do your startups come from?
All over the world really. Some headquarter cities: Singapore, Bangkok, New York, Moscow, Jakarta, Taipei, Buenos Aires, Amsterdam, Hong Kong, Seoul, etc. In India alone, our startups are headquartered in Bangalore (5), Mumbai, Gurgaon, Ghaziabad, New Delhi, and Kolkata.
GIVEN THE PANDEMIC, DO COMPANIES still NEED TO BE IN TAIPEI FOR part of the program?
No. We have run several successful virtual programs and love the instant access to even greater talent and investor networks. Looking forward to meeting you in person though!
How is the program structured?
Our holistic program has a modular structure that allows founders to run their companies while participating in the program. We run one-week modules such as Growth Hacking Week, Fundraising Module, and GOAT (Geeks on a Trip) in Taipei, SE Asia, or India.
Typically, companies complete all modules in 6-12 months.
what's the deadline for application?
Apply when you feel ready. We process applications throughout the year but earlier applications will be given priority.
