MOX 7 Demo Day Press Release

MOX | Mobile Only Accelerator

The SOSV-backed accelerator graduates a new cohort of global startups pioneering health tech, education, social commerce and entertainment. 

MOX, the Mobile Only Accelerator that propels mobile app startups into the world’s emerging markets, graduates Batch 7 on August 27. For the last three months, MOX has accelerated 10 startups from India, Hong Kong, and Indonesia, including 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 entered the internet space using their PCs, but the next billion users — specifically Southeast Asia, Eastern Europe and South America — will be mobile-only. Mobile-only markets will represent the bulk of growth in internet as hundreds of millions of people access the Internet for the first time on smartphones,” said William Bao Bean Managing Director of MOX and General Partner of SOSV, “MOX helps startups from around the world win in the largest mobile-first markets India and South East Asia through our accelerator focused on localization, optimization, monetization and partnerships.”

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.

MOX is operated by the VC firm SOSV with US$625M assets under management. Headquartered in Silicon Valley, SOSV – The Accelerator VC – operates six vertically focused accelerator programs: MOX for mobile internet (Taipei), IndieBio and RebelBio for biotech (San Francisco, London), HAX for hardware (Shenzhen, San Francisco), Chinaccelerator for internet and software (Shanghai), and Food-X for foodtech and agritech (NYC). SOSV invests in over 150 companies per year and over its two-decade history has a net realized IRR of over 30%, putting it in the top 5% performing of venture capital funds in the world.
